Some great-uncles volunteering.
Uncle Wal served very briefly in WWI. Uncle Victor was a bit too young. They lived well inland in the the Riverina region of NSW, Australia. No buzzbomb ever disturbed their slumbers, as far as I can tell.
I have mentioned this elsewhere but this entry from the flying log of Flying Officer W.J.Henderson always intrigues me.
'Oct 31 1944. Day ops -- Gestapo HQ at Aaarhuspa, Denmark -- Refuelled at Swanton Morley before & after. Light and medium flak D.C.O.'
This mission was flown in a Mosquito (of RAAF squadron 464). The navigator was W/O Jack Hawke.
