    Default Contact info for Wg Cdr John Barras

    Wg Cdr John Barras is the author of an interesting article on the 5 April 1942 Japanese attack on Colombo which can be read at http://www.raf.mod.uk/history_old/ceylon.html. I've written my own account of this attack, at http://www.journal.forces.gc.ca/vo7/no4/stuart-eng.asp, and would love to be able to discuss the attack with Wg Cdr Barras but I have been unable to learn how to contact him. Would any member of this forum be able to put me in contact with him?

    Thanks,

    Rob Stuart

    Hi Rob,

    Wg Cdr John Barras is the Memorials/Secretary of the 30 Sqn Association of which I am a member. You may contact him through the Association website (just google 30 Sqn Association). If you have any problems you can PM me and I will give you the phone number of the Chairman who will put you in touch with John.

    As you will be aware the article you are referring to involved 30 Sqn Hurricanes, much information can be found in the Sqn's history room at Lyneham including logbooks of some of the pilots involved. A good time to visit would be during the next Sqn reunion on 8/9th April 2011 (the last at Lyneham) and we usually get a free flight in one of the Sqn's Herc's, barring Icelandic Volcanos and the like....

    Whilst you are on the Association website please take a look at my article 'Lofty' Lord - Life with the Blenheim (click on the History tab).

    Regards,
    Simon
