 STTF36 Group Captain Richard Cummins Haine OBE DFC
WWII Fighter Command Ace & Battle of Britain Pilot

 Born on 1 October 1916, Haine learned to fly whilst still at school. He joined the RAF as a direct-entry Airman u/t Pilot (580010) on 26 August 1935 and did his ab initio course at 2 FTS, Filton.
Haine went to 11 FTS, Wittering, on 7 November and he joined 25 Squadron on 10 May 1936. He was in the squadron aerobatics team at the Hendon Air Display in 1937. The squadron converted to Blenheims in December 1938 and in August 1939 moved to Northolt. On 28 November he flew one of six Blenheims of 25 Squadron which went with six from 601 Squadron to attack the seaplane base at Borkum, the first fighter attack of the war on Germany. He probably destroyed a He 59 on the water.
On 1 April 1940 Haine was commissioned and posted to 600 Squadron. On 10 May he flew one of the six Blenheims which attacked Waalhaven airfield, Rotterdam in daylight and from which only one returned safely to base. Haine claimed a Bf 109 destroyed and two Ju 52s damaged on the ground before he was shot down. After making a forced-landing, he and his gunner evaded capture and returned to England in the destroyer evacuating the Dutch Royal Family. Haine was awarded the DFC (9.7.40).
He served with 600 in the Battle of Britain and on 14 January 1941 was posted to 68 Squadron at Catterick, as a Flight Commander. Haine moved to HQ 9 Group at Preston on 21 June, as Squadron Leader Night Ops, and on 31 December he took command of 96 Squadron at Wrexham. When the command was upgraded to Wing Commander rank on 18 May 1942, Haine reverted to Flight Commander. He was posted to HQ Fighter Command on 24 March 1943, as Squadron Leader Night Training and then Wing Commander, OC Training Wing at 54 OTU on 12 June 1943.
On 2 January 1944 he was given command of 488 (RNZAF) Squadron. Haine destroyed a Ju 88 during the night of 4/5 August and a Ju 188 on 1/2 September. He moved to HQ 85 Group, Ghent on 23 October 1944 and on 29 December took command of 147 Wing at Odiham.
Haine was made OC at Winfield on 19 March 1945, a satellite station of 54 OTU, Charter Hall. He was briefly Station Commander at RAF Eshott in May, SOA at 302 Wing, Ibsley in June and in early July he left for overseas and after several brief appointments in Hong Kong from early September 1945 to the end of the year, he became Wing Commander Flying at Kai Tak on 21 January 1946.
Haine retired on 1 October 1970, as a Group Captain. He was made an OBE (1.1.62).
