World War Wednesdays: From the Roost of the Thunderbirds
John "Chic" Neill flew in the 426 (Thunderbird) squadron as a wireless operator and gunner, along with fellow Parkwood resident Lorne Spicer who was the navigator during the Second World War. Spicer said they mainly flew the Halifax and only had a few flights in the Lancaster. They were on 5 days leave when the portrait of their group was taken at their base in Linton-On-Loise, England.
