Leonard Payne Faulds:
Leonard's son, Leston Faulds, emailed me this:
"My father, Leonard Payne Faulds, is on the right hand side of the picture as one views it, third row starting with 4 men in long coats and officer style hats
(the 4th one appears to have a mustache) one other man, then my father. His hat is set right on his right eyebrow, very jaunty.
I believe he also served on HMCS Kitchener, but I need to confirm that with military records. He also served in the RCAF in the Korean war and was stationed in Germany.
He relocated to the US and worked on (the) Apollo Moon Landing project specializing in communications systems. "
Can you provide details or corrections?
