BBMF Personnel join George Dunn to celebrate his 100th Birthday

This year, World War 2 bomber pilot and veteran, George Dunn, turned 100 years old and personnel from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight were honoured to be able to celebrate his special day with him at a birthday party organised in his home village of Rottingdean, Brighton.

Speaking of attending, and the BBMF’s relationship with George, the Flight’s Admin Officer Diane Law-Crookes said “It is always wonderful to catch up with our good friend George, but to be able to celebrate his 100th birthday with him was a very special event and it meant a great deal to us all to be invited along”.

The BBMF have a very special relationship with George, who regularly visits the flight, has held numerous talks for personnel at RAF Coningsby, and attends our veterans’ events. He also joined our PR team at Eastbourne Airshow this year, where he enjoyed the Spitfire display flown by OC BBMF, Mark Sugden and took part in our Virtual Reality Lancaster experience.
