Gloster Javelin


I was born in Leeds because dad was stationed in Yorkshire with the RAF at that time. He and mum lived in married quarters in Church Fenton and then in Leconfield until I was five years old when dad left the RAF after completing his twelve years service to become a teacher.

For the last part of his RAF career dad was a navigator on Gloster Javelins with the mission to keep the Russian bombers away.

The Javelin was part of my early childhood and there are still several pictures of them in dad's house now. So it was with some delighted that I found this Javelin website.
