Bill signed up with the Royal Air Force soon after war was declared in 1939. Just like most young men, he wanted to be a pilot, or at least an air gunner. Fortunately for him, the doctors told him that his eye sight wasn't good enough. He became an aircraftsman, and learned how to drive
lorries & motorbikes. His duties included carrying bombs and torpedoes to the planes. He also drove fire engines and ambulances.
      His squadron was sent overseas. Here's an easy question for you. This is a picture postcard that he sent home.

  • Where was he sent?

Harder question.....
  • What was the British Army doing there?
