How my Dad beat Hitler

As it’s VE day, here’s a couple of pictures of my Dad, Alexander Walker Hamilton, who served in the Royal Air Force between 1940 and 1946, and helped give Hitler and the Germans a good stuffing.

Here he is, aged 19, getting his picture taken at the Valette Studio, 32 Bank Street, Blackpool, on 2 May 1942.

And here he is, towards the end of the war with his best friend (and future best man), Phil McLuskey.
