Sqn. Ldr. Lawrence “Benny” Goodman (617 Sqn) volunteered for aircrew at 18 years of age and was called up in 1940.
Furthermore In addition to basic training he went to RAF Abingdon – a Whitley O.T.U – for what he was told would be ‘straight through’ training.

In 1941, a posting eventually came through to the Initial Training Wing followed and then by Elementary Flying School at Peterborough and an instructor’s course at Woodley,
Reading; then to Clyffe Pyparde, a holding unit.
A sea journey to Canada followed and Service Flying Training School on Ansons.

“However, I had to learn everything first, so I was just about one step ahead of the students!” said Benny.
Eventually returning to the UK and O.T.U. on Wellingtons at Silverstone and Heavy Conversion Bomber Unit at Swinderby on Stirlings.
Next onto a short course at the Lancaster Conversion Unit.

He completed 30 missions – all with William “Jock” Burnett as his flight engineer.
