Here is photo of Dad in the cockpit. I believe it's a Whitley. And there's also a photo of Mom and me. This one is taken at the window overlooking a small courtyard at 13 Deva Terrace, Chester.

Dad is now O.C. of "B" Flight. And at the end of April it seems he got a promotion to Flight Lieutenant. Here is a copy of a page out of a magazine which shows Dad welcoming a Canadian to Bomber Command. And a new plane has been added to the list - a Magister.
Here we are in a new year. Things seemed to have changed in January. I note that Dad is a Flying Officer O.C. of "D" Flight. I'm sure one of my very knowledgeable readers out there will correct me but I think this means that he is now an instructor with bomber command.

In June 1940, Dad moved to No. 7 B.& G.S. at Newton Down - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Newton - and started training on Whitleys.
