    Default Help Requested on George Trehane Collins

    Hello All,
    George Trehane Collins was a big glider man in Cornwall for many years post-WW2, often at Perranporth. During WW2 he had been Fl Lt G T Collins (150421). Cmd from LAC 25 May 43, Relinquished 24 Nov 59.
    A colleague is asking about his wartime career as a ‘bomber pilot’.
    Does anybody know of him, or know anything about his WW2 flying career?
    Just a ‘shot in the dark’ – but one never knows just what you experts have got tucked away in your various histories/databases!
    TIA
