1939

For the past years I was fortunate to locate and interview some of our last remaining WW2 SAAF pilots. I also made contact with family members of those who served who kindly allowed me to copy log books and memorabilia. A treasure of historical information is now being revealed and made public in memory of our brave WW2 SAAF airmen.
