F/Lt. Ronald Stanley Flight DFC & bar, AFC. 151 Sqd.

151 Squadron, 20th of June 1944

My father, Ronald Flight, served in the Second World War, starting as a flying instructor in London. He served with his cousins John Baylis and Roy Flight (who later was taken as POW). My father served several tours and did a lot of photographic work. He and my mother, Joan Eve, married during the war. As it was wartime, there was only one wedding dress available in the area they lived and the women shared it.

My father's navigator was Brian Douglas Mackins - and they flew together all through the war and both survived. They both received their DFC after their aircraft was shot at over Germany. They managed to keep it in the air long enough to get back to base in UK - my father said that at times they were skimming the tops of hedges and sea waves as they were flying so low.

Judith Flight

F/O. David Alistair "Dicky" Sparrow 151 Squadron (d.20th April 1943)

David Sparrow met my mother just before the War and after he gained his wings they became engaged. He was posted to 151 Squadron in 1941, flying Defiants and later Mosquito NF11. His gunner and later Radar Operator was F/O Victor Brown. Late in 1942 David was sent to De Havilland to be the test pilot for the High Altitude Mosquito. Upon returning to the Squadron in 1943 he became involved with the early Night Ranger missions into enemy territory and sadly was shot down and killed along with Victor Brown on April 20th 1943. The aircraft Mosquito DZ755 crashed close to Smeerling in the Netherlands where the two crew are buried and remembered by the local community every year.
