Hello,

 

I am hoping that someone can help me. I recently purchased this great photo of Al Deere and another DFC and bar fighter pilot, probably also from 54 Sqn. Can anyone confirm who he is? I thought maybe Colin Gray or Johnny Checketts but neither of them got the bar to the DFC and it looks like this pilot has.

 

Cheers

i ran your photo past a good friend who runs the spitfirebooks.com website, although familiar he can’t put a name to the chap. But he suggests putting your photo on the Flypast historic aviation forum for an immediate answer!

 

good luck, let us know, when you find out

They are very quick on that forum aren’t they! The pilot in question is Dennis Crowley-Milling:
