    Mark Walker was my father and a remarkable character who was always very modest about his achievements. I know how pleased he would be that his fellow countrymen were being remembered by the errection of a permanent memorial.

  2. Sherron Walker-Harford adds:

    Mark Walker, R.I.P., is my Dad. I would really appreciate any information I can get re his tenure in the RAF, as Daddy did not talk about it much, and my brother Michael and I would dearly like to know about that time of our father’s life.

    Thank you
    Sherron Walker-Harford

    Is this the Mark Marcel Dubois Sebastian Walker who flew Mosquitos, was shot down and wounded in 1944 over France? He played cricket for the RAF.

  4. Sherron Walker-Harford adds:

    Yes, he was my Dad. I would appreciate any information you could give me and my brother and sister about that time of his life. My email address is sherron1953@yahoo.com.
