It is with great sadness that I must pass on to all of you news from Kevin of the passing of Barry Aldridge.

Barry was 68 and died after long battle with dementia.

In 1995 Barry along with his wife Sue started the museum at Witchford, dedicated to 115 and 75 NZ Squadrons.

    Hallo Bram, bedank om de info te sturen, kan ik een beetje blijven volgen he, van de andere uilen geen nieuws ontvangen. Ben erg tevreden met jullie inspanningen voor de projecten ook voor tina. De datum voor de bbq van 8 mei is ongelukkig gekozen, hebben waarschijnlijk niet aan d-dag gedacht, tina en roger zullen er dan niet bij zijn.

    ondertussen is het februari, hoever staan ze met de detector papierwinkel? En den toren?

    Groeten aan eva, laat de info maar komen
