Alan Conrad is my father and this website is a photographic record of his travels and experiences during World War II as 1478237 LAC CLK/GD Conrad, A. . He was born in September 1921 and is currently in good health living in Witney, England, near Oxford. His wife, Connie, died in January 2014.

His wartime experiences were gained during a four year tour overseas in the Middle and Far East in the Orderly Rooms of various RAF squadrons and units. A summary of his travels may be found on the Itinery page.

An Update 58 Years On:

In November 2002 Alan went on a Royal British Legion Pilgrimage back to Sri Lanka and visited familar sights at the Koggala base where he was stationed 58 years earlier. Read about the visit in his words here.

My name is John Conrad, and I live in Crossville, Tennessee where I created this record from a photo album of my father's and from brief discussions with him when we met from time to time.
