    Default Roger Cave Porteous

    Can anybody help me with a picture of Roger Cave Porteous - last rank Group Captain and killed flying a Vampire VV665 from No. 145 Squadron in 1943.
    He was a Wing Commander and CO No. 487 Squadron in 1945. He flew with No. 6 Squadron in North Africa earlier in the war.

    I suspect there is a typo in your post, Carsten. The Vampire did not enter squadron service until 1946. You also describe Porteous as being CO of 487 Squadron in 1945.

    Edit.

    1. I think you meant 1953 - see http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showthread.php?t=30184

    2. Have you seen this link https://www.porteous.org.uk/slideshow.html. No sign of a photo here although it is compiled by a family member.
