Sqn Ldr (retired) Trevor Charles Wingham Peacock

The Association have just been informed about the sad news that Trevor Peacock has passed away.

Should anyone want to attend his funeral it is in the RAF Chapel in Biggin Hill 2nd June at 1130hrs. Anyone attending should let the family know by email peacock27@btinternet.com or phone Stephanie on 01959 570145. (See details below)

Trevor was a Flight Engineer on XXIV at RAF Colerne on Hastings aircraft from 1960 – 1962, later becoming an Eng Leader and Standards checker. After leaving the service he was a Deputy Head of an Aerospace College.

He was once prisoner of the Japanese and was scheduled to be used for bayonet training the day after he was saved by our advancing army in the Far East. Trevor upheld the genuine traditions and gallantry of the Royal Air Force and we are sure the family are all proud of his service in  which as a trainer and standards checker he gave a lot back to the students at the time he was instructing.
