My Grandmother was Marjorie Elizabeth, although she married again after Anthony's death she never forgot him and spoke often of him and of their very short time together.

My Grandfather Percy "Jim" James Timson was a close friend of Anthony. Anthony is one of the lesser known hero's of the Battle of France for 501 Squadron and the AASF during May and June 1940. R.I.P. Tony - I will try through my research to tell your story as fully as I am able. Nil Time 501.
