RAF FIGHTER PILOTS - SUNDAY 25th JANUARY


It is a great honour to announce that we’ll be joined at the UK Gallery in Wendover by WWII veterans who served with RAF Fighter Command.

Wing Commander TONY PICKERING AFC - with 32 Sqn and 501 Sqn he flew Hurricanes throughout the Battle of Britain and on September 11th was forced to bale out after being hit by return fire from a bomber he was attacking. He moved to 601 Sqn at the end of 1940 before a spell as a test pilot and instructor. He returned to flying operationally with 131 Sqn in 1943 and finished the war serving in the Middle East.

Wing Commander TERENCE KANE - joining the RAF in 1938, he flew Spitfires with 234 Sqn during the Battle of Britain claiming two victories. His aircraft was damaged in combat and he was forced to bale out into the sea off the French coast at the height of the Battle, subsequently spending the rest of the War as a PoW.

Squadron Leader IAN BLAIR DFM - joining the RAF at 16 as an Observer on Blenheims with 113 Sqn but during an operation his Pilot was killed, prompting him to take control – earning him an immediate DFM. He then trained as a pilot, flying Spitfires over Europe with 501 and 602 Sqns.

Warrant Officer EDMUND CREEGAN - joining the RAF in 1941 and completing his training in both the US and Canada, Edmund flew Spitfires with 243 Sqn, 322 Wing in North Africa. Ground-strafing in Italy, he was shot down in December '44 and taken PoW, held in Munich.

Warrant Officer GEORGE BIGGS - joined the RAF in 1942 and completed training to become a pilot. He joined 32 ‘The Royal’ Sqn where he flew Spitfires and later joined 208 Sqn, again on Spitfires, where he took part in the Italian Campaign.

Corporal CATHERINE HENDERSON - a member of the Maintenance Unit working on engines Spitfires & Mustangs, Catherine was stationed at Hawarden in 1942. Women proved to be very useful in this role, as their smaller hands meant they were better able to reach into nooks and crannies of the engines than many men. In 1944 the whole unit was moved to Chilbolton, where they worked in support of the Normandy Invasion.
