George Ernest Goodman Nos. 1 and 73 Squadron

I am interested in any information about 42598 George Ernest Goodman who flew with Nos. 1 and 73 squadrons between March 1940 and June 1941. I have uploaded a photo (poor quatity, I'm afraid) of members of No. 73 squadron from the first half of 1941. Goodman is the one in the cap. Can anyone fill in the names of the others? Any other information not easily found on the internet would be appreciated.

Thanks. Anything else on George? That is one of the books I'm having difficulty getting hold of.

Goodman is mentioned extensively throughout the book. He has 26 entries in the index. Afraid I don't have a scanner, nor access to one.

Thanks.

Hi

My book HURRICANES OVER TOBRUK also has a copy of that photo, plus information on Goodman. Try Amazon.

Cheers
Brian

Brian,

Another book high on my list that is out of print. I am waiting for one of the resellers to come up with a good copy that will ship to my location.
