George Dunn and Dave Fellowes
An unforgettable account by two air crew survivors who helped Britain triumph in World War II, who, between them, took part in 77 operations with Bomber Command. Pilot, Flight Lieutenant George Dunn DFC, (94) and Rear Gunner, Warrant Officer Dave Fellowes, (92) will talk on stage with military aviation author Steve Darlow. Hear what it was like to fly deep into enemy territory over Nazi-occupied Europe and about the endurance required to survive such nerve-racking missions as well as living on the edge in the bleak RAF bases between missions.
As a pilot George Dunn flew Halifaxes, taking part in the vital attack on the German secret weapon research station at Peenemünde, and went on to fly Mosquitoes. Rear gunner Dave Fellowes served in the rear turret of a Lancaster bomber, surviving a mid-air collision and combat with enemy aircraft. They were two of the lucky ones - 60% of all aircrew became casualties. After the war Dave worked in the commercial airline industry and George flew Spitfires in the Middle East before joining a removal firm.
With excellent books chronicling the Bomber Command experience, this talk will be an unmissable opportunity to hear first-hand stories from two men at the heart of the conflict.
