An email has been received from Mrs Sarah Paddison, the daughter of John Owen Penrose (Pen) a former pilot for Fairey Surveys, until the late 1960s or early 1970s:
I would be very grateful to know if anyone has any memories or photographs of my father John Owen Penrose (Pen). I recently made my first trip back to White Waltham aerodrome but could not find anything other than the company logo in the Flying club bar.
My first memories of the airfield are getting up early, walking across the road from our house to pick mushrooms with Dad, for breakfast.
Any information would be much appreciated, thank you
If anyone has any information or photographs to share, please leave a comment, and we’ll pass on your details to Mrs Paddison.
