Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – P/O L W Graham
Leslie William Graham had served in the South African Air Force and apparently was granted a direct-entry RAFVR commission because of that service.
He arrived at 7 OTU Hawarden on 15th July 1940 and after converting to Hurricanes joined 56 Squadron at North Weald on 29th July.
His Hurricane, V7368, was set alight in a surprise attack by enemy aircraft during a sector patrol on 16th August. Graham baled out, slightly injured. He was posted away three days later to RAF North Weald as non-effective sick.
His subsequent service is currently undocumented until Graham was released from the RAF in 1946 as a Squadron Leader.
