    i am looking into the history of my fathers RAF service and i believe he may have served as a rear gunner for the pilot owen sylvester of the 15th sqn plan LS N that flew from Mildenhall we lost his war records whilst moving.

    I may have some information about Pilot Owen Sylvester. I interviewed a gentleman of the same name and rank for a documentary in 1995.

  5. John Allom adds:

    Hi Chris,

    My name is John Allom, and I am George Arthur Allom’s grandson. He was in the same crew. I met your Mam and Dad a couple of times when I was younger. My Grandpa helped write a chapter in a book called Bomber Command. I also still have his log book. As regards to Owen, I believe that there must be an earlier documentary from the 1980′s. I think it was a TV series called ‘Black Britain’. My Grandpa and your Dad met up with Owen at a pub in Suffolk I believe. They hadn’t seen Owen in almost 30 years. The show was about Owen and his exploits as a black pilot in the RAF.
