Dear all,
I have just had a call from Ron's daughter and It is with the deepest regrets that I have to tell you that Byron Duckenfield died this morning after a short illness.

Byron flew with 74 & 32 squadrons pre-war and with 501 Sqn during the Battle of Britain and later flew in the far East where he was taken prisoner by the Japanese and spent 3 1/2 years as a POW.

I'm sure that our sincere condolenses go out to Ghee his lovely wife and the rest of his family, Janet his daughter asked me to pass on the News.
Kindest Regatds
Bob
