Bill Roberts was my father-in-law, he passed away in 2013. We were very close and we had his medals mounted and gave it to him. We know he served in Egypt working on Spitfire maintenance. He was born on 11 April 1925 so would have been a young man at the time. We don't know a great deal about his service but he was stationed at Colerne near Bath at one point and this is how he met his wife Betty and settled here.
