What is it you want to know and I'll see if there's anything in any of my books.

Hi Kev35

I have the general info from Chorleys and Franks losses books and on some of the guys a little bit more but, any further info would be great, it all helps to build up a profile.

Leads to people who may have known any of these guys would also be helpful, photographs would be superb.

Thanks for your help.

08/07/44 Spitfire lX ML366 Flt/Lt R Collis of 126Sqn

Ron Collis is still around I believe. I corresponded with him briefly in the late 80s about his time flying the Spit XII with 41 Squadron prior to his going to 126. He has done some writing of his own as well as artwork. He has a website at:

It's not been updated in some time and he didn't respond to a recent e-mail.

My understanding is he was hit by flak over the Channel and bailed out.

Not much, but I hope that helps :)
