Idris 'Taffy' Arndell 101 Squadron RAF

Post by Ludford101 »

Another stalwart of the 101 Squadron Association passed away on the 15th November 2015.

Idris 'Taffy' Arndell who was W/Op on Rusty Waughman's crew 1943-44 and was a regular attender at the annual reunion in Lincoln/Ludford for many years ... his last being this September.

The photograph was taken back in 2008 when there was still 6 members of Rusty's crew remaining ... now sadly down to 4 :(

Our thoughts go out to the family of Idris 'Taffy'Ardnell.
Like all ex crew members, we would like to acknowledge this gentleman's' contribution to Bomber Command.
We will remember them.
