With a heavy heart, we learnt about the passing away of Wing Commander Hoshang Patel of Bombay. He passed away today 25th January 2017, at the age of 96. A WW2 veteran airman and pilot who served in two tours in Burma, one of the few to do it as both an erk as well as a pilot. Hoshang Sir was the one who gave the spark to the fire of WW2 research that this website has carried out over the years.
