Melissa Gordon adds to the listing of E.A. Gordon and the group-picture on the home-page:
The 2nd row 1st on the left is my Dad, F/O Egbert A Gordon from Jamaica. He left Jamaica to join the RAF with his lifetime friend, Vincent A Bunting and they flew and served with distinction together. Both married British ladies and had British born children, Dad had 3 in England 1 in New York, Vin had 1 in England, 1 in Antigua and 1 in Jamaica. At the end of the war, Dad took his family to New York where his Mother had migrated, and Vincent Bunting moved to Antigua, and then later back to Jamaica. This photo has always been in our family along with many more from Dad’s RAF days and we are proud of his service and to identify our loving Father on this site.

  2. Ron Bunting adds:

    I am a direct descendant of the Rev Jabez Bunting DD of the methodist Church.
    I understand one of Jabez’s Children is Buried in the Caribbean after serving as Church missionary and I was wondering if Vincent was related. Would he be the father of Peter Bunting MP ?
