The Kilpatrick crew – new material added to their Op History page…….

The Kilpatrick crew.
Back row from L to R: F/Sgt Jock Cattenach (A/B), Sgt Geoff Davenport (W/Op), F/Lt Mart Kilpatrick (Pilot), Sgt Ben Barton (F/E), Sgt Bob Olive (R/Gnr).
Front row: F/Lt Ray Tait (Nav), Sgt Albert Haliday (Mu/Gnr)

A notification, really, of an expanded Op history – this time for ‘Mart’ Kilpatrick’s crew. Already, the existence of the an Op History page for every single crew is providing a far easier way of adding received information and hopefully will, as posted material is cross referenced and added, result is some fascination personal histories.

Via Ginny, I must particularly thank Val, Martin Kilpatrick’s daughter for a wonderful personal biography of her Father, covering pre-war, training, Operations with 75(NZ) Squadron RAF and life after the RNZAF.

Heartfelt thanks also to Ann, Daughter of ‘Titch’ Haliday, who has been with me  since before the start of the blog, with the donation material of her Fathers.
