 The following eleven photographs have been sent in by Robert (Taff) Price, who was one of our squadron suppliers at Butterworth. I have to say Taff, for a penguin was more of a Rockape at times than some of us Rock’s. If there was anything going on Taff would sure be in the thick of it. An example of this is further up this page, that is Taff, jumping out of the helicopter with Nick (Streaky) Bacon hard on his heels.
