    Default Attn Steve Brew - John Bowyer Buckley

    Steve,

    back in 2007 you posted a thread asking for information adout J B Buckley

    http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/11478.php

    John was my maternal uncle and the information from you and others responding to the post was very useful.

    The family story was that he was on a scolarship to the US but went to Canada, lied about his age (then about 17 1/2) and joined the RCAF.

    He had been at Rugby School and was on his way to St Georges School in Rhode Island

    We know he flew spitfires with 92 Squadron from August '42 and was later assistant to the AOC Western Desert until he was killed in the crash on 3rd June '43

    I have two family albums of photographs from his time with 92 Squadron.

    I wonder if you found out any furher information?

    Thanks

    Matt

    Hi Matt

    Great to hear from you; thanks for posting.

    Your timing is excellent, as I am just completing the manuscript for my next volume of 41 Squadron's History, and it contains John Bowyer Buckley's story.

    I do indeed have further information I can provide you. However, may I ask you to please contact me directly via e-mail on brewATclientsDOTch, replacing AT and DOT with the appropriate symbols, or go to http://brew.clients.ch/bsv.htm and e-mail me from the website?

    Thanks
    Steve
