My fellow Squadron mate Bob Thompson succumbed to cancer just recently and I am saddened by this brave man's passing.
Bob you fought for your cause and later on in life against that dreaded cancer which ravaged your body.
On sending Pam your sister my condolences this is the poignant reply:-
Thanks so much. We did not realise how many chums Bob had out there. It has been terrific to hear from so many of you who served with Bob. He was a good man and fought very hard for life. Alas, he won the battles along the way but not the war. A bit like you chaps, really?

Kind regards

Can someone who has a photo of Bob please send me a copy to post here?
