Tuesday, June 14, 2016


Today is a day of remembrance in my Daddy Ron's family.
A day which honours his father Flight Lieutenant Gordon W.A. Troke
who would have been 100 on this June 14th, 2016.

Ron's father died on June 24, 1952 
based in North Bay, Ontario 
after re-enlistening for the Korean War.

were all his father knew and owned.

This information was garnered from "cieldegloire" website.
(if you decide to view this site ^^
you must translate from french. 
The photos above are the english version 
translated by Ron.....you'll noticed some unlikely translations)

With only one memory etched in his mind of his father,
Ron says he always wanted to know his history, to know the feeling of flying
and his father's strength and fortitude of mind.
This link below will show you spitfires flying and photographed by handheld method.
Ron said that these were the answer for him.
The crisp sharpness of the photos are so exacting and helped give a true feeling for his father's bravery and daredevil.
There is a video as well after the 5th photo which with the silence makes the moment even more profound.



Thanks everyone for my indulgence
may peace
surround you on this special day.
