Re: Second Dickie flights

My father did two second dickey flights when he joined XV Squadron at RAF Bourn before being let loose on his own.


When his aircraft was later shot down and all the crew were killed he had a 21 year old RCAF as second dickey having his first flight who never got to go on his own.
