"Hi John, I have just stumbled across this website once more which I last accessed in August 2015 two years ago! I posted a message to you then and I just wanted to ask if you ever received it? This site seems a bit unresponsive but maybe…"
This is a very quick reply as I am very busy today, but I did wanted to reply as soon as I could.
Yes I know about your father and as you know my father flew with him as his Flt Lt. with 245. He had many kind thinks to say about…"
My father was CO of 245 and I met your father in 2004 at Noyers Bocage, in fact I have a super photo of him (somewhere). Perhaps we could share memories some time. I live in Cheshire.

If there was one warbird you could own, what would it be?

Tell the community a little bit about yourself ...
My father was John Samuel Slaney DFC who flew Hurricanes and Typhoons operationally from 1941-1944. He flew with Squadrons 247, 257 and 245 and as Fl Lt. and was shot down over Danvou, Normandie on 15 June 1944 whilst leading the squadron attacking a Panzer group. He narrowly survived and became a POW in Stalag Luft 1 returning in 1945. He died in 2008.
