The Lancaster bomber that is the subject of the booklet by Joost Klootwijk "Lancaster W4827:Failed to Return" partially came down in my grandparents farm in Nieuw Vennep, The Netherlands. I very much want to purchase one or two copies of this booklet. Can you tell me whom to contact to buy this book? Thank-you for any help you can give me.

What a great & fitting website.

I was at the official opening of the Chaguaramas Military Museum in Trinidad in 2002. I now realize that some of the gentlemen listed here, such as S/L Ulrich Cross, were probably there and I didn't get to meet them! I would have loved to get their opinion on RAF bomber operations over Germany.

I have always been curious as to how many, if any, West Indians were fighter pilots during the Battle of Britain.

I am the president of the Association of remembrance in Britanny air.
The town of Pont Saint Martin near Nantes would cry out for the memory of a crew loss on his commune.
I am looking for information on the pilot of Hampden I AD750, fallen February 4, 1941.
Pilot Officer Inniss, HAROLD GEORGE FREDERICK, 24 ans.106 Sqdn. Royal Air Force. Plot L. Row A. Grave 15. NANTES (PONT-DU-CENS) COMMUNAL CEMETERY.

To arrange a ceremony in his memory, I want his family photos of him. Any information on him.
Thank you for your help.

Hello, again.
Just checking in. I wonder if there's anyone out there with any information on my daddy? Carroll Anthony Kennedy did not have distinctions that I'm aware of, but he served faithfully and I'd love to know if anyone knows him from Lucea, JA or on arrival in London, 1948
Best wishes,

This site is a new discovery for me, and a wonderful idea for a tribute to the servicemen from the West Indies.
I am looking for anyone who can validate my dad's service with RAF Kidlington - now Oxford airport.
I have next to no information, but I believe he was a navigator. In any case, his name is Carroll Anthony Kennedy, known as Tony Kennedy. He came from Lucea, JA and was born (I think! 1917). I'd be grateful for any info even if it contradicts my idea of who he was.
Cheers, everyone!

Thanks a million.

This site is wonderful and long overdue. I have added some information on my late uncle F/O Aston Karl Aiken, who was killed in action while serving with RAF 107 Squadron 8/8/1944 as navigator with his Canadian Mosquito a/c pilot F/O W.M. Taylor while attacking railway sidings in the Marne area of France. This site serves to remind us of the invaluable contribution of west indian servicemenn to the Britsh war effort, a fact often overlooked by historians, and almost unknown today in the very Caribbean they came from.

My father, Wellesley Winston Whyte (Jamaica) fought for England with the RAF in WW2.

I would be keen to meet anyone that knew him. He was very tall, and 17 when he left Jamaica and at the time he enrolled, he was living in Montego Bay, son of policeman George Samuel Whyte.

I was only a bit familiar with the Caribbean contribution to WW2 allied aircrews. This website has shown me how extensive that contribution was. Keep up the good work with this site. Thank you to your veterans for their service.

What a tremendous tribute to all the brave and selfless Carribean aircrews who fought so valiantly during WWII. It is nothing short of shameful and yet another national disgrace that these men have not received the recognition they so obviously deserve. I have always known of their service to this nation and have long spread the word whenever possible. We should be proud of their sacrifice and I, for one, will always be grateful for what they did.

Well done Cy and Co. This is a wonderful tribute to the British West Indian airmen. After the war many of them became leaders of great integrity and bravery who changed the Caribbean for the better. We had significant input from Squadron Leader Phillip Louis Ulric Cross and Flight Lieutenant Dudley J. Thompson both of whom were in great health and spirits when I spoke to them last year (2008). However, I have lost contact with Mr. Thompson and would appreciate contact with him. 301-661-3280.

Best regards,

Greetings Cy,
it is important that young people in Britain, Black and other, understand the contribution of Black personel in the European tribal wars and the lies told to them before,during and after lives were sacrificed for colonial power.

Dudley Thompson, Jamaican Flight Lieutenant in WW2 is my father. It's wonderful to come upon this website. I will let him know about this as he has been looking for former crew members. You can add him to the list of Jamaican officers, and he will probably contact you with further information about his years of service in the RAF.

Well done Cy for starting and keeping this very needed site.
As you know, I am not a fan of wars, but people caught in them, innocently, ought to be acknowledged.

I will be spreading the word around to help you get the job done.

Warmest regards,
