Today I have added several new pages on to the website. We have three more Cambridge-born airmen who died in the Second World War:

David Pullenger

Maurice Victor Smith

Alexander Neilson Thomson

I want to say thanks to Errol Martyn for his help with information on the above three airmen. Any further info on these men would be appreciated if anyone can offer more.

Another page is on my own Great-Uncle Ted Homewood, who is universally known as Bluey. He joined the RNZAF in 1940 and was in for five months before being fed up with stacking shelves in the stores and pushing aeroplanes around the tarmac,so he signed on with the Army. It only just dawned on my yesterday that he needs to be included on the website as he lived in Cambridge for several years in the 1950’s, and in fact it was because of him that my grandparents moved here from Ardmore with my Dad, leading to Dad meeting Mum, and the rest is history. His page is here:

Another two pages that I have added are that of husbad and wife Murray and Joan Lind. These two pages are very much works in progress, put up so that their son Alan Lind can see what i have so far and hopefully he will add more. Murray Lind was a No. 485 (NZ) Squadron Spitfire pilot, and Joan was a WAAF in the UK.

Lastly, a page that has had a bit of updating lately and will hopefully receive more as some significant information has just been promised by his daughter Barbara Good, is the page on Lancaster pilot Frank Stott
