    Default AVM Sidney Osborne Bufton, C.B., D.F.C.

    I have nearly completed compiling the biographies of all the Squadron and Flight Commanders of 76 Squadron, 1916 - 1960. Could someone kindly point me in the right direction to obtain a photograph of A.V.M. Sidney Osborne Bufton who was CO of 76 Sqn March 1941. Thank you.

    Thanks Phill, that fits with what I found out about in 1967 - he became the High Sheriff of Radnorshire with his address given as 1 Castle Keep, London Road, Reigate, Surrey. The War Illustrated will help admirably. Thanks again
