Indian Journey

15th February

I am travelling to India this weekend to celebrate the 75th anniversary of 10 Squadron of the Indian Air Force. My father, Bob Doe, was their first commanding officer. I am delighted and honoured to be invited to Jodhpur .

When writing his biography, Fighter Pilot,  I learnt so much about the WW2 campaign in India and Burma.
