    Always been fascinated with Pattle, particularly his consummate skill in the Glad and his involvement in the Greek campaign.

    Third photo of the first batch - "these six were responsible for downing more than 100 enemy aircraft" or words to that effect. Wow. Looks like a Glad wheel and tyre in front of Sgt Gregory's boot!

    Little view of a Bombay in the second batch and what must have been a moving ceremony - Pattle's father receiving his son's DFC.
