Hi,

My grandad was Harry Gill who was the first person to the german plane when it was shot down in Bromborough.

My family gave the picture that we had to the museum and I was wondering if anyone has a copy of this picture as I was only 3 years old when my Grandad passed away but would love to have a copy.

Many thanks
