Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – Sgt. I N MacRae

 

Ian Nicholson MacRae was educated at McLaren High School, Callender, Perthshire. He joined the RAF on 1st September 1931 as an Aircraft Apprentice and passed out in August 1934 as a Metal Rigger.

He later applied for pilot training and was selected. He was posted from RAF Hucknall to 23 Squadron on 15th September 1939.

MacRae was one of the original members of the Fighter Interception Unit when it was formed at Tangmere. He joined it on 17th April 1940 and its ORB shows him ‘giving up flying’ in an entry dated 9th March 1941, this may be health related.

He received a Mention in Dispatches (gazetted 14th January 1944).

It is believed that he survived the war.
