Anzac Day 25 April 2009

 

Gidday from Brisbane, Australia

My name is Peter Dunn. My father-in-law, Jan (John) Goulevitch, DFC, was a pilot with 460 Squadron and flew one mission in "G" for George.   While he was still alive, I was intrigued with the various stories that he told me about his exploits during his time with 460 Squadron RAAF. It was these stories that lead me to start this home page on 460 Squadron RAAF.

In later years

I would be very interested to receive any stories or recollections by former Air Crew and Ground Crew of their time with 460 Squadron RAAF.  I am also interested in borrowing any photographs of 460 Squadron RAAF that I can scan to place on this Home Page.

Regards Peter Dunn
