    I’d love to make contact with Hugh Robison about 65 Squadron’s Jimmy Muir, Corran Ashworth, Jock Taylor, etc.

  2. Dale Mahfood adds:

    I am writing a novel that is set in Jamaica during WWII. One of the characters has a father who has left Jamaica to enlisted in the RAF. I would love to communicate with Mr. Robinson about how a Jamaican would have done that. If he can, please have him email me at Thanks.

    I am currently researching RAF Peterhead and live within cycling distance of it. I have a record for a WO O.H. Robison flying with 65 Sqn there in 1945 and was wondering if your are that same individual mentioned in the Operational Records Book as flying outrider / escort for the Banff and Dallachy strike wings.

    Kindest Regards

    I know that Hugh died in 2016. I’m very interested to make contact with his daughter Gloria or grandson Hugh as my uncle Sonny and Hugh Snr went to school and the RAF together.
