"Bob" Upper Heyford 1952

I have just acquired this caricature by Pat Rooney. It is a drawing of "Bob" and is dated at Upper Heyford in 1952. The aircraft appear to be KB50 tankers. I'm curious to know who Bob is, any help greatly appreciated.

Obviously a USAF captain from the shoulder bars-best bet is to ask the question in a suitable veterans mag in the USA?
