Thank you, I have e mailed the gliding club and will keep you posted.

A post war picture of Eric Shore supplied by John Burrow via the gliding club.  Still hopeful for a  wartime photograph.

Hello David.

I am related to Eric Hudson Lithgow Shore. His father (William Lithgow Shore) and my grandmother were siblings. He was thus a cousin of my mother. I can fill you in with all his family details if you want them. My mother, aged 90, is sure to have lots of photos of him but maybe not wartime ones. She has several anecdotes relating to his time as a prisoner of war. It will take some time for me to search out any photos. I met up with my "Uncle Eric" infrequently before he died. He married and lived in Devon but had no children. He had one brother and one sister.

Apologies...I have not used Rootschat before and am not familiar with the systems of communication.

Kind regards Deborah Fairclough

Good to hear from you Deborah.  I am hopeful that your mother can find a wartime photograph of Eric and would be interested to hear some of his POW anecdotes.  What I have on him can be seen here.  https://wallyswar.wordpress.com/other-pows/

Regards, David.

Hello David
I have found a photo of Eric Hudson Lithgow Shore taken on his wedding day in 1946. He is dressed in his air force uniform.
The file size of the photo is too large for Rootschat to handle and a reduction/compression/change of resolution are all beyond my computer skills. I am thus unable to send you a copy unless you would be prepared to give your email address. My mother tells me that he was extremely reluctant to share his war-time experiences with the family so no anecdotes forthcoming. He obtained his artist's materials from a camp guard in exchange for cigarettes.
Regards Deborah Fairclough
