Hello, I hope you can help me? I believe that my late uncle Bill (William) Quigley originally from Dublin was a Sargent pilot during WW2 and possibly served in Malta. I would be very grateful if you could shed any light on this or perhaps direct me as to where I might find more information.

My father helped to build the Lancaster bombers during the war. He was a foreman in the factory. German bullets were shot into the ground as he ran for his life. His mate was killed

The Merlin could burn up to 20 pints/hour, hence oil capacity was 37 Imp gallons per engine. Regards from author of FLIGHT RISK - The Misadventures of a Freelance Airline Pilot.; Amazon Kindle ebook.

Everyday we should always remember the sacrifices made. So that we remain without war in the future. And our future generations must never forget. R.I.P. a defender of freedom.

Regarding the attribution of the Baldwin quotation: There is not, and never has been, any such post as "Lord President of Great Britain", a title that seems to suggest a head of state, akin to the President of the USA or France. Stanley Baldwin in 1932 was rather Lord President of the Council, meaning the Privy Council. The post has few real powers and is certainly not head of state (that was the King).

Looks like a 681 Squadron Spitfire at Alipore. My father flew with this squadron in 1942-1943. His Spit had the letter "H". A very hairy posting. He started with 3 squadron at North Weald and then with 607 Squadron at Martlesham Heath and then Manston in 1941 where he flew "Hurri-bombers"
