Flight Sergeant Ronald Parsons

Major News.... Ron Parsons was the Air Gunner with Edwin (Ted) Mooring!!
And as of April 2012 is still very much alive and with us... YAY....

The reason this is amazin news is that we have family members of Ted in our phone book and we have a bunch of stuff all about Ted Mooring.. which in turn gives us photo's or Ron.
