Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – AC2 W H Blane

 

William Higgins Blane joined the RAFVR in June 1940 at 3 RAF Depot Padgate as an Aircrafthand. After a short radar course at RAF Yatesbury he was posted to 604 Squadron at Gravesend on 20th July as aircrew but with no flying training, rank or brevet.

He flew at least one operational sortie during the Battle of Britain period, on 5th September 1940, with F/Lt. CDE Skinner as pilot. Blane was still serving with 604 in November 1940.

His subsequent service is currently undocumented but he does not appear in the CWGC casualty records so it may be assumed that he survived the war.
