Many thanks indeed to Noel Baker for so generously allowing me to ‘borrow’ information on Colin from his own website that can be visited here. It never ceases to amaze me the generosity people show in letting me present information on a relative who flew with 75(NZ) Squadron. Colin’s story with the Squadron now represents the furthest back that I have  got with an individuals information (1940 in this case) and also, Colin was the youngest Squadron Leader from the Commonwealth forces at his time of Acting appointment. Noel has presented a fascinating and very well detailed account of Colin’s life and flying career – you should read it in full

Many thanks Noel.
