Flight Lieutenant William James Green AE*

Green joined 501 Squadron, AuxAF at Bristol in December 1936 as an AC 2 u/t Fitter (Aero Engines) (813076). With the introduction of a scheme in October 1938 for the AuxAF to train its own NCO pilots, Green applied and was accepted. He became an LAC u/t Pilot and was partly trained when he was called to full-time service on August 24 1939.

Green was posted to 5 EFTS, Hanworth in October 1939, where he did 50 hours on Magisters. In March 1940 he went to 3 FTS, South Cerney, flying 110 hours on Harts on intermediate and advanced training. Promoted to Corporal when awarded his flying badge, he was made Sergeant on completion of the course.

He rejoined 501 Squadron in mid-July 1 1940. Having bypassed OTU, he was entirely without Hurricane experience and taught himself to fly it before being taken officially on to the strength of 501 on August 20.

Four days later Green crashed at Hawkinge afer being hit by anti-aircraft guns during combat with Ju 88s and Bf l09s attacking Manston he was attacked by Bf109s again on 29th and forced to make a crash landing. He was posted to 504 Squadron at Filton in November 1940. He went to 4 FIS, Cambridge in March 1941 for a course, after which he instructed at 10 EFTS, Locking and 3 EFTS, Shellingford.

Green was commissioned from Warrant Officer in October 1942. He was posted to 5 FTS, Cranwell in June 1943, to instruct on Masters, and in November he went to 39 OTU, Tealing on Spitfires.

From March 1944 he was at 1682 DTD, Enstone on Tomahawks. In preparation for a return to operations, Green went to 3 TEU, Aston Down in October for conversion to Typhoon, went on to Tempests at Thorney Island and then joined 56 Squadron at Volkel in November.

Green was shot down in February 1945 and was a PoW until May. Posted back to instruct at Shellingford, he was released from the RAF in November 1945. He joined the RAFVR in June 1947 and instructed at 6 RFS, Sywell until July 1953.
