Are we looking for participation trophies? Who's the first kill by a left handed pilot with red hair?

Marcantilan,
Henry Jones, (H Jones grandson) is running a “On this day” commentary on his Twitter page. Some interesting documents and pictures coming to light.
Thought others may be interested otherwise I would have sent pm.

Those of you who subscribe to the book of faces may be interested in the EE Canberra Appreciation Group. A chap called Eduardo Luis Angelelli is posting a few pictures of the Canberra being bombed up for ops in 82. I guess photos from his own private collection that have not previously been published.
