So 2 days to go.....

I have tried to do a bit of research on WO Berry and find out where he went after Project 65 and did he survive the war.

It's not been that easy but this is what know, his initials were A.K. Berry and he was part of the Halifax 298 squadron, after releasing the gliders the rest of their mission that night was to bomb a cement factory near Caen.

I can find nothing further about him during the war, however, in 1947, 298 squadron was disbanded and sent overseas to Risalpur take part in Operation Tiger Force in India.  The RAF sent a lot of Tempests planes out as part of Tiger Force, there is a photo of Flt Lt Arthur Berry in Risalpur  instructing the IAF in the use of Tempests.  I am assuming this is the same man.  There are references to Arthur Berry on the web in relation to tempests in india with increasing rank up to Wing Commander throughout the 50's.  I have been able to trace him no further than that.

As far as my training goes, I have my final run with Ledbury Running club tonight (tues) and then I am all done.  I had a brilliant run on the white horse hill at uffington on Satiurday so am feeling pretty chipper.  Just some last minute items to get now:  vaseline, blister patches, zinc oxide tape, pedicure ( so indulgent) and passport.

No 10 Squadron poses with the Jamsahib of Nawanagar at Jamnagar. Standing L-R are U/K EO, Flg Offrs Nirmal Singh, CR Bose, MM Singh, SK Mitra, IS Loughran, Umed Singh, BN Mishra, BS Sikand and Flt Lt Nair EO. Seated L-R Flt Lt DG Michael, MM Basu (Doc), Sqn Ldr J Bouche' CI, ATW, Miss Naushad (18 yrs) daughter of the Jamsahib, Sqn Ldr Pundalik B Pawar, CO, Mrs Jamsahib, Flt Lt Dilbagh Singh, Flt Lt Arthur Berry, Fg Offr MS Grewal.

Then the same steps as above are followed - the numbers are summed until one digit remains. Some numerologists will not break numbers that total 11, 22, or 33.

    What am I doing ?

    On the 4th June I am taking part in a 65mile run for Project65.

    Why ?  I hadn't planned on doing any runs this year but as my mum phoned and asked me I thought I best oblige.  I feel very privileged to be able to take part in this event.  My stepfather Bill is an ex para-trooper and has not been too well recently, this event has really fired his imagination and he has already supported me by paying my entrance fee. 

    Both my parents were in the forces and my stepfather's brother was a sergeant navigator who died in the war so I am delighted to be involved in the D Day commemoration.

    "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them."
