RAF Tailgunner assigned to 419 Dec.'42 til end of war
This set of photographs was contributed by John Darnley.
Sgt. Darnley flew on many operations with F/L Byford and F/O Daly, who themselves flew on many missions together Sgt. Darnley, F/L Byford and F/O Daly also appear in a couple of group shots found in a other section of the website.
In addition to showing members of the 419 Squadron the photos show details of the living quarters and of course the bicycles of Middleton St. George
The bicycles had a life of there own, often disappearing and resurfacing with a new "owner" on the base or in front of some near by pub.
