This is a picture of my father Reg, taken in 1945
Tonight at 7:00 on Channel 5, the episode of War Hero in my Family which features my father is broadcast.
It follows my short journey to discover what my father actually did in World War II. I knew he was in the RAF, I knew he flew about in bombers, that was about it.
What I actually discovered was fiarly remarkable. My dad was in 192 squadron stationed in Norfolk. That meant nothing to me until I found out a little more. He never told us anything about it and what emerges in the program is one of the reasons why he never did. One of the few clues he gave us was his annoyance with 'the damn back room boffins' and I now understand why he might have been a little annoyed with them.
Amazing stuff. I'm very proud of the old duffer. You can see a teaser about the show here.
