As many sites link to the old URL, that will be kept live for some time
Welcome to 26 Squadron SAAF (WW II)
This is an unofficial site dedicated to 26 Squadron SAAF that was based in Takoradi, Ghana (Gold Coast) on the West Coast of Africa during World War II. My late father, Lt Dennis de Saxe, was based there and I found it quite difficult to find information about this squadron. This site was created as a tribute to all the the brave young men that were involved with 26 Squadron. It is also a place were we can collect information, stories and pictures to create a central resource for anyone that has an interest in the squadron or any of its crew members.
If anyone has photos, stories, history, insignia or ANY relevant information at all, please forward to me and I will see that it goes onto the site.
