1 May 87 Jersey Airman Mentioned in Despatches . Flown in veteran amphibian Grumman Widgeon. Personally Signed by 7 holders Mentioned in Despatches Air Vice Marshal H Le Bas ( Vulcan ),
Born in Argentina and known as 'Pancho', he joined No 234 Sqn at Ibsley in late 1941 and became involved in cross channel offensive patrols in Spitfire II. However, early in the New Year, he was transferred to No 610 Squadron but looking for a more active role he volunteered for service in the Middle East and was transferred to the newly re-equipped No 601 Squadron. Embarking their Spitfires aboard the USS Wasp in April 1942 they flew their aircraft from the carrier's deck on 20 April to reinforce the defences of Malta. His stay in Malta was short-lived however, when in June 1942, the squadron was transferred to the Western Desert where he took part in armed reconnaissance patrols and ground attack missions in support of the 8th Army advance from El Alamein.
A spell as an instructor at Abu Sueir in Egypt was followed in 1944, by receiving command of No 241 Squadron, flying Spitfire VIII/IX's, in Italy, here he was involved in Tactical Reconnaissance and Photographic Reconnaissance, mainly on behalf of the 57th Bomb Wing, USAAF. This would involve carrying out recce sorties followed by landing at the American bases so that bombing missions could be laid on almost immediately.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Constantine ( Siskin ) As a Group Captain station commander of RAF Elsham Wolds, 'Connie' Constantine insisted on joining the first 1,000-bomber raid over Cologne in May 1942, an unusual occurrence for an officer of his rank. He was awarded the DSO the same year while commanding Elsham Wolds, and was mentioned in dispatches four times. He began his RAF career as a fighter pilot but soon moved to Bomber Command where he became a protégé of Bomber Harris. As SASO with 1 Group between 1943 and 1944, Constantine was handpicked by Harris to become Deputy SASO at Bomber Command headquarters, before being appointed to succeed Sir Ralph Cochrane as AOC 5 Group in January 1945. During his time with 5 Group, Constantine worked closely with the scientist Barnes Wallis of bouncing bomb fame, also winning praise from General Montgomery for the accurate bombing carried out by his squadrons in support of the Allied crossing of the Rhine in March 1945. After the war he became Deputy Chief of Staff at SHAPE in Paris and later C-in-C Flying Training command before retirement in 1964. He died on 16 April 1992, aged eighty-three,
Air Vice Marshal F.S.Hazlewood ( Valiant ),
Born in Buckingham and educated at Kimbolton School, he was under age on the outbreak of war but nevertheless volunteered. With no vacancies for pilots, he signed up as a wireless operator/air gunner and in 1940 joined his first squadron. On the completion of his tour of 30 operations, he undertook a tour as an instructor at a bomber OTU, before being accepted for pilot training, which he undertook in Canada.
On completion of his training, he was commissioned and after operational training joined No 224 Squadron, which was then operating Wellingtons over the Indian Ocean from Masirah. On his return to the UK he joined No 14 Squadron in Coastal Command. He continued serving with Coastal Command for about 10 years, in both operational roles and as an instructor.
He joined the Examining Wing of the Central Flying School in 1954, where he commanded the multi-engine squadron. After CFS, he took command of No 90 Squadron, equipped with the Valiant, the first of the V-bombers. A couple of anecdotes about his time with No 90 were included in his obituary in The Times: -
"On an exercise to the Far East, Hazlewood led three Valiants in a flypast over Saigon. During the three-day visit he was asked to fly the diminutive Vietnamese Chief of Staff, General Vinh, who, once airborne in the co-pilot's seat but unable to reach the rudder pedals, asked if the aircraft could "beat up" the main street of Saigon, culminating in a low pass over the Regent's Palace.
After some hesitation, Hazlewood reluctantly agreed. On landing, the general was greeted as a national "ace" and the press praised him for flying a British V-bomber in such a daring manner. Hazlewood was glad to leave the next day in case any more requests strained the marvellous hospitality.
A few months later, on a visit to California, he and his crew were entertained to a dinner and Hazlewood found himself seated next to the glamorous, busty film actress Jayne Mansfield. He recalled later: "I cannot remember the meal but I can certainly remember Jayne Mansfield.""
Following command of No 90 Squadron, he joined the planning staff at HQ Bomber Command before moving to RAF Germany in 1962. On his return, he joined Transport Command as OC, RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire. He then spent six months in the Ministry of Defence before returning to RAF Germany as Senior Air Staff Officer. Returning to the UK again, he took up the post of Commandant of the Central Flying School. It was during this appointment that he qualified as a helicopter pilot. In 1972, he took command of No 38 Group and two years later the Jont Warfare Establishment.
Retiring from the RAF he bought a run-down farm house and refurbished it himself and became a small-holder

Air Chief Marshal Sir A W Heward ( Heyford ), Anthony Heward joined the RAF on a Short Service Commission shortly after his 18th Birthday and following his basic flying was posted to Egypt to complete his training as a multi-engined pilot with No 216 Sqn. Qualifying as a multi-engined pilot, he returned to Britain and was posted to No 149 Sqn at Mildenhall. Initially flying the biplane Handley Page Heyford, the squadron began to convert to the new monoplane Vickers Wellington in January 1939 and by March the Heyford at been completed replaced. However, by the outbreak of war, he had left the squadron and was assigned to the staff of the Air Component of the BEF based in France. The German invasion of France caused major upheavals and the HQ staff gradually withdrew back towards to the coast and Anthony Heward was eventually evacuated back to Britain by sea.
Back in Britain, he was posted as a flying instructor to RAF Sealand in Cheshire. It was here that he first met the WAAF cipher clerk who four years later would become his wife. He remained on instructional duties in the UK until 1942, when he was seconded to the Turkish Air Force, still as a flying instructor but ironically teaching Turkish pilots how to fly the GERMAN Heinkel 111 bomber. Disenchanted with instructing by this time and desperate to join an operational squadron, he accepted an offer from an American pilot visiting Turkey to fly with him back to the USA for a break. Unfortunately he fell ill in the States and was unable to get back to his post on time and was hence reported AWOL. Eventually managing to gain passage back to Britain by sea, he was arrested on arrival at Liverpool by the RAF Police. As an alternative to Court Martial he was offered a posting to an operational bomber squadron, an offer he jumped at with enthusiasm.
Posted as a Flight Commander to No 83 Sqn, a Lancaster squadron, then based at Wyton as part of the Pathfinder Force, but shortly afterwards he was promoted to Wing Commander and given command of No 50 Sqn, also equipped with Lancasters, but in No 5 Group. He soon earned the sobriquet 'Smiler' as a result of his coolness and highly disciplined attitude. So when No 97 Sqn was transferred from 8 Group to No 5 and AVM Cochrane (AOC, No 5 Group) considered the discipline in the squadron to be lax he appointed Anthony Heward, as their new CO in order to overcome this problem, a move which was entirely successful.
Having completed a staff course at the Staff College in Haifa, he stayed in the Middle East as Personal Staff Officer to the AOC in C, ACM Sir Charles Medhurst. From 1981 to 1989 he sat as a Councillor on Wiltshire County Council.
Air Vice Marshal I D Napier Lawson ( Comet ) , Graduating from London Polytechnic in 1934, he joined De Havilland until 1939. In 1938 he joined the RAFVR as a Sergeant but by the time he was called up in 1939, he had only completed 40 hours training. Posted to RAF Cranwell to continue his training he was commissioned on completion and then posted to fly Wellingtons with No 214 Squadron via No 11 OTU. However, after 12 missions with 214 he was sent out to the Middle East where he joined No 148 Squadron. With 148 he took part in operations against targets in North Africa, Greece, Crete, Sicily and Yugoslavia. Taken off operations he became training officer at Group HQ, but was soon on the move back to Britain in order to familiarise himself with the latest developments in techniques then being used by Bomber Command. Having experienced operations in Europe, he returned to the Middle East tasked with adapting these techniques for use in the theatre as Group Captain - Operations at HQ MEAF.
Awarded a permanent commission at the end of WW2, he attended the RAF Staff College and proceeded on the normal round of operational commands interspersed with staff postings. At the end of 1964 he returned to where he had begun his RAF career as a Sergeant in 1939, Cranwell, as Commandant of the RAF College.
On retirement from the RAF he went back into the aircraft industry, joining BAC in 1969. From 1974 until the formation of British Aerospace in 1979 he was Chief Sales Executive of the Bristol Division at Weybridge. In 1979 he was appointed General Marketing Manager (Civil) of British Aerospace retiring in 1981 to become a non-executive Director of Gloster (Air Holdings) Ltd until the following year.
Gp Capt R W Oxspring ( Spitfire 9 )Dunkirk Battle of Britain Fighter Pilot ,
Air Chief Marshal Sir A Steedman ( Brigand ). Alistair Steedman entered the RAF in January 1941 having previously attended Hampton Grammar School. Following completion of his flying training, he was commissioned and posted to No 241 Squadron. Equipped with Mustangs, the squadron was based at Ayr and was involved in Tactical Recce operations in support of the Army When No 241 Squadron was prepared for overseas, he transferred to No 2 Sqn in order to assist them in converting to the Mustang, continuing to fly with No 2 until the end of the war.
A spell on staff duties in the Air Ministry was followed by a return to flying when he was given command of No 39 Squadron, then based in the Middle East flying Tempest F6's in the fighter-bomber role. His next command saw him move northwards from the Sudan to Aden where he took over No 8 Sqn equipped with Bristol Brigands.
Following retirement, he became Controller of the RAF Benevolent Fund as well as serve on a large number of bodies and organisations. Such organisations have included, the National Advisory Centre for Careers for Women (1988 - ), RAF Small Arms Association (Vice Patron 1978 - ), Central Flying School Association (Patron 1984 - ), International Air Tattoo (Chairman 1981 - 88, Vice-Patron 1988 - ) and memberships of the Board of Governors of Gordon School (1987 - ) and Hampton School (1976 - ). He was also a Liveryman of the Guild of Air Pilots and Navigators
