Hi Sally ,
It was amazing to meet you yesterday and your wonderful cafe is an absolute treasure !
Here’s a picture of my father being tied in by his airman , he must have been about 21 years old and somehow had his initials WP-B on the fuselage as his call sign .
His name is/was William Pitt-Brown and achieved the rank of Air Commodore with AFC , DFC , CBE among others including the Burma Star .
I hope this may be of interest as he was also Commanding Officer of Biggin Hill just after the war 1950-1952 as shown in the index at the back of the book ‘ Biggin on the Bump ‘ .
After we left you we went ‘ walkabout ‘ and found my old house being the OMQ’s CO’s house now called ‘ Romney ‘ and still owned by the MOD ; I knocked on the door to be greeted by its present officer occupier , he very kindly invited me in saying he recognised the family name referring to the same book !
Thank you so very much for showing me your wonderful family and history through the years , you are a true ambassador for the Forces boys and girls and of course the RAF in particular .
We shall meet again soon I hope .
With my kindest regards , Peter .
