Happy VE Day

Yes, it’s Victory In Europe Day, and few people did more to beat the bally Bosche than my deid Dad, Alexander Walker Hamilton.  He spent six years in the RAF between 1940 and 1946 giving Adolf what for.

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.
