An e-mail from Andrew Ross:

I discovered your site whilst researching RAF Sylt, where my grandfather Harry White was based for a short time. As far as I can tell from his service record he was assigned to this squadron from January 1945 until he left the RAF in May 1946.

If any one has more information about my grandfather, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
