Introduction!
« on: October 03, 2016, 12:39:47 PM »
Evening folks - well it is here in England!

Just like to introduce myself - Bermadoobo from Plymouth, Devon, England - I seem to have set myself up as the family historian over the last twenty years and of recent have been chasing down the distant ones within the family. My father was one of eleven (9 boys/2 girls) of which seven boys served in the forces during WWII and beyond. My uncle Charlie (19) joined the RAF in 1941, he was a wireless op/air gunner in the RAF lost on a raid over Essen in June 1942 on Wellington X8652 - thats where the interest started way back in 1999.

Hope thats sufficient for the minute!

Kind regards

Bermadoobob

Welcome abaord
Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain.....
