Obiturary of Wing Commander John Freeborn (

Although we knew that he had been a high ranking commander in the RAF, I was unaware of just what a war hero this old friend of my parents actually was.

I well remember John from when I was but a wee slip of a lad; he was always a kindly elderly gentleman who fascinated me with his crisp accent. My parents remember him fondly and send their best wishes to his family.
