Bill Morris - A Lucky Life


The Wartime Adventures of a Lancashire Lad in the RAF


by Sarah Morris with  Brian Mills


14 x 20cm 44pp


(no ISBN number as it is a privately printed limited edition of 500 copies)


Would make a perfect gift for parents, grandparents and anyone else interested in WW2 or RAF history! Usually £8.99 - Special offer price £5.99.




Born into a poor working class family in Bolton, Lancashire in 1921, Bill Morris was destined to spend his life working in a cotton mill until the Second World War intervened.


He joined the RAF in 1941 and volunteered for aircrew duty as a pilot - only to be told that his legs were too short! Undeterred, he trained as a Wireless Operator/Air Gunner - an occupation that few of his contemporaries survived.


Bill was one of the lucky ones. Not only did he live to tell the tale but his War also involved attacking German V1 flying bomb launch sites, joining a Free French bomber squadron, rubbing shoulders with Eisenhower and King George - and taking part in an Operation on D Day that officially never happened...


He also found time to court the girl of his dreams! A lucky life indeed.


Bill flew over 30 operations in Douglas Bostons with 88 Squadron and 342  (Free French) Squadron - AKA Groupe Lorraine - from Hartford Bridge in 1943-44.
