[img_assist|nid=146|title=|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=65|height=100]My father, Corporal A.J. Payne (Jack), was in the RAF during the 1939 to 1945 war and was trained to work on Spitfire engines - Rolls Royce Merlins.

He spent the last years of the war in India. Here are accounts he wrote in the form of letters to his mother of trips he made to Calcutta, Darjeeling and the Taj Mahal during periods of leave. On his return to the UK he also wrote of some of his impressions and experiences of India.
