Wing Commander Douglas Joyce Eayrs (RAFO 26081), CB, CBE, DFC

Hello,

Am looking for a Picture of the late Group Captain Douglas Joyce Eayrs (RAFO 26081), C.B., C.B.E., D.F.C.

He commanded 640 Squadron and flew some missions to Berlin, in 1944.

I was thinking if anyone had a photo it would have been Bill but sadly he is no longer with us

Hello,

Bill Norman's Archive is in the care of this gentleman:

Might be worthwhile dropping him a line.

Col.

Chris and Colonel Bruggy,

Thank you for pointing me to Bill and the new-owner of his archives, which I already contacted.
