Conversation Between Roy Nixon and Simon Hughes

1 Visitor Messages

  1. Hi, I have just joined the Bulletin and hoping to find out more about my father, He joined the RAAF in 1940 and was then sent to Rhodesia for pilot training. He was then sent to the UK and was in a squadron which did photo reconnaissance over france. I also believe he also dod train strafing in france. I think his base was around York.

    He did speak about his time in Rhodesia and also told me he became friends with Ian Smith the then President of Rhodesia.

    If someone can get me started his name was James Hughes fliying officer 408208. The only squadron number I can
    find is 231. In Australia he was also a member of the RAAF Rhodisia association of which I cant find any information on.

    Hoping someone can help me,

    Kind Regards,

    Simon Hughes
