    Default Thomas Francis Guest battle of Britain and the great escape

    Hi all,
    I am looking for a photograph of Thomas Francis Guest to use on the Battle of Britain monument website.
    Guest flew with 79 and 56 squadrons during the Battle and was the tailor that produced civilian clothing for the great escape.
    I am hoping that someone here may have a picture and more information on him.
    Regards
    Gerry
