Richard was a Warrant Officer in the Royal Air Force, f lying Spitfires and Hurricanes.

He completed his training in Estevan, Saskatchewan and was deployed to South East London where he was a bomber pilot then a flight instructor at RAF Cranwell.

Richard always wanted to be a bomber pilot and got “really lucky” as the casualty rate was 50%! Richard “felt safer in the Air Force than at home.”
