And if by chance – Redux

This is the first post on this blog that pays homage to mostly unsung heroes. I don’t have many followers, and I did not write much about unsung heroes since 2015. And if by chance was written in 2013, and this is the original post.


And if by chance I am killed, then you must just take a little more concern in your own lives and those of Barton & Alan & their offsprings. Mourning is of no use & there could be no better thing to die for. […]
Very Best Love from John.

This is an excerpt of an article written by Hilary Custance Green. At first I wanted to post it on my blog about RAF 23 Squadron.

Much more.
