401 Squadron somewhere in Europe. Those words handwritten on
the back of a photograph is all that identifies the source of the
photos in this section. These photos were given to me by an uncle in
about 1954, who was in the Canadian armed forces during WW II.
I don't know if he took the photos or obtained them from someone
else; I suspect a combination of the two. The flight photos were
obviously not taken by him. Some of photos may have been taken in Canada.
My thanks to Gordon Permann, a Luftwaffe researcher for the San Diego
Aerospace Museum, Scott Rose of the Warbirds Resource Group, and Mark
Stewart from England who is researching surviving Spitfires
worldwide, and other visitors. They have provided the identification
and commentary for some of these photographs
