440 Squadron

P/O John Roberts was a pilot with 440 Squadron during the Second World War. He was quoted in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper on September 12, 1944. (See article.) In a press release dated March 7, 1945: "F/O John Roberts, 206 Glenview Avenue, Toronto, who led the section commented, "It was darned good bombing, some light flak. We pulled up through the clouds into a big gaggle of Spits coming home from another show."

Photos are from Harry Hardy's personal collection. Harry commented in October 2019 that he remembers "Jack" Roberts was an architect from the Toronto area who passed away 'early.' Harry held a high opinion of his friend.

Two additional pictures of Roberts are in Typhoon and Tempest by Hugh Halliday.
