Engine Fitter


Known as "Tex" for possibly obvious reasons.

49 Sqn was his very first squadron on leaving apprentice training. He served between 1961-1963.

Further information supplied by Dallas:

I have nothing but good memories of my time with 49Sqn.

Indeed, many years later on my return to Marham I helped demolish the tea bar that I had helped build in 1962 and found my name, along with others written in pencil under the work surface.

I managed one trip in a Valiant and was horribly sick right on the final approach - the one and only time I was ever airsick in my following 39 years of service.
