Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – Sgt. J Cunningham
James Cunningham joined the RAFVR in June 1940 as an Aircrafthand. He volunteered for flying duties and was sent on a short radar course at RAF Yatesbury, after which he joined 29 Squadron at Digby on 26th September as an LAC Radar Operator.
He is known to have flown two operational sorties, with P/O DJ Anderson, pilot, and P/O P Byng-Hall, gunner, on 28th September 1940 and with F/O LGH Kells, pilot, and Sgt. R Lilley, gunner on 8th October 1940.
His subsequent service is currently undocumented and it is not known at what date he left the RAF.
He does not appear in the CWGC casualty list so it may be assumed that he survived the war.
