Bill Loakes RiP

It is with a sad heart that we must notify Association members of the passing of Bill Loakes, IX(B) Squadron Lancaster flight engineer, on Thursday 3 September at the tender age of 93 years old.  Bill was one of our few remaining World War II Veterans and previously served on the Association as the Lancaster Era secretary – he will be sadly missed by all those who were fortunate to meet him and hear of his exploits at first hand.   Our thoughts are with his wife Jean, their family and friends.
