Bloggat om Liberators Over the Atlantic
Born in 1919 Jack Colman was the only child of Freda and Harold of York. A conscientious student he had an ambition from the age of 10 to become a Pilot. The war was his opportunity. Selected for pilot training, he joined the RAF shortly after his twenty-first birthday which rescued him, for a time, from the office job in insurance which it was recommended he took, aged sixteen. Postwar he had a spell as a commercial pilot for BEA until 1953 when layoffs saw him return to insurance. He and Peggy had two boys Peter and Richard.
