Above: John R. "Westy" Westwood (note the RAF wings). He was a good friend of Fewer McGee ("The Wolf"). Westy said he had trouble getting into the Air Corp because of his age. He joined the Canadian Air Force and served in RAF before being transfered into the Army Air Corp about the same time as McGee got to Bassingbourn.

In the picture are (Left to Right): Ed Floyd Close (best man), Peggy, Litia Rubira (not sure of spelling), and Westy. Westy sent this picture to McGee. It reads, "To my Buddy Maggie - The Rookie. All the best. Westy. Reportedly, Westy called McGee "Maggie," which was slang for his last name McGee. (McGee had been shot down on 4 February 1944 and became a POW).
