Birth of the Black Panthers free pdf Befriending an amateur artist colleague of her husband my youngest sister Irene asked him one day if he could paint a picture of our brother's favourite spitfire. The plane in question was adorned with a big black cat leaping over the RAF roundel on the port side of the fuselage. Sometime later an exhibition of the artists work was held at the Town Hall in Hornchurch, Essex, not far from my sister's hometown of Romford. Among the exhibits was a replica of the one painted for her, and one day the curator was approached by an elderly military looking gentleman complete with silver moustache asking after the artist, quickly discovering the reason behind the painting and the disaster that befell its pilot. "That's Smithy's plane" exclaimed the gentleman who straightaway contacted my sister. So that is how I came to learn of Ken Plumridge "Plum" ex-Burma Black Panther pilot and through him Ray Johnson the inaugural AC1 Plumber who became 152 squadron's sergeant armourer and very enthusiastic exponent of all things and people connected to the squadron. It became the catalyst for the story of a squadron destined to fly and fight against all our enemies throughout every theatre of war. From the First of the Few to the capitulation of Italy the pursuit of the Hun and final surrender of the Japanese.

About William Smith

Born on the 18th of March 1927 life in my infancy through such young and innocent eyes appeared straightforward and uncomplicated. In actual fact of course my family had been thrown into turmoil by the sad loss of our mother before I had reached the age of 9 months. It would be my eldest sister Ciss who was left to pick up the pieces because of father's work and apart from a short period of being "farmed out" so to speak would be responsible alongside her new husband Jack for the welfare of her youngest sibling until I reached manhood. Without the interference of the over-weaning nanny state I was taught the rudiments of self-discipline, responsibility and common sense during those formative years. These attributes have stood me in good stead throughout my life helping me to take advantage of the many opportunities that came my way. To be considered an author at the age of 85 would have tickled my wife, brothers and sisters especially Len, but alas they have all gone!
