PROGRESS & PICTURE - Captain A.M.C 'Jock' Smith -


I have received a letter of provenance and now have further information on Captain A.M.C "Jock" Smith of the South African Air Force.......see Code No. 52697 for his Flying Headset

Jock (Beaufighter Pilot) was Mentioned in Despatches on 3rd April 1943. Later in life he was awarded the MBE for Services to Industry. Incredibly, during the making of the movie "African Queen" he was tasked with flying Humphrey Bogart to and from the film set.

Some of this new information should surely help establish 'Jock's' full identity and his SAAF Service History.
