Likewise Chris. And like Brian said, how do these sort of things end up leaving the family. Mind you, I don't suppose for a minute that my daughter will keep any of mine or my grandfathers records. Sad isn't it?
Brilliant mate. That kinda brought him alive
I think i've now posted everything that relates to Mr Cordwell seniors army service records.
these are the last of the documents that I have, they're related to his son, if there are any that I have missed i'm sure Ian will let us know.
I'm sorry there isn't any more as i've really enjoyed being educated by Chocks knowledge and research, hopefully we can find something else. thanks Chocks.
I know these arn't documents but I think this is the best place to show them.
I've only just received these picture. They are part of a collection that have recently been found locked away in an ex american airmans house. They haven't seen the light of day for 70 years. Most of the pictures are of american actions in the pacific but these three were obviously taken in the UK.
For those who arn't sure, they show a Spitfire tracking or chasing a V1 rocket during WW2.

I think the Spitfires tipped the wings up of the V1's to knock them off course. Great photos chocks..
Had this some years now but I misplaced it until yesterday. This ducument was given to by a guy who was actually there on the day. Just thought it may be of interest to someone.
