Re: I was sent this Poem. so true
Before WW2 Tommy Kidger was a Reyrolle's 'Driller'.When war was imminent he joined the RAF and became a Navigator in Bomber Command WW2. Two of the many Missions he flew was to bomb Pienmunde where the German's were producing V1 & V2 rockets. Another mission was to fly across Europe, over the Alps to bomb an aeroplane engine manufacturing Plant in Italy.
He was awarded the DFC.
Tommy died an old man in 2006 living alone in Quarry Rd.
Not long before his death local yobs throwing stones broke his windows. How sad!.
