Groundcrew turned Fighter Pilot - Edworthy

Sgt Gerald H Edworthy learned to fly at No 6 E & RFS during 1938. Much of his initial training was carried out in G-ADGT and extracts from his Pilots' Flying Logbook are reproduced here.

Sgt Edworthy went on to join 46 Sqn at North Weald, flying the legendary Hawker Hurricane. Sadly, he was killed in action on 3 September 1940, at the height of the Battle of Britain.

However, the story does not end here. Sgt Edworthy's nephew, Paul Carr, is an ex-RAF pilot who flies both the CAP10 and the Tiger Moth with Finest Hour. You may find him hosting you on your special day or he may even be the instructor introducing you to the delights of the Tiger Moth vintage biplane.
