Moral Support

Flt Lt Russell (Rusty) Waughman DFC, AFC, (Pilot)

Flt Lt Russell (Rusty) Waughman DFC, AFC, (Pilot) volunteered for the RAF in 1941. After training in Canada, he qualified as a heavy bomber pilot.
In November 1943 he was posted to No 101(Special Duties) Squadron at Ludford Magna. He completed a tour of operations, which began during the ‘Battle of Berlin’,
where they did several operations. Surviving a mid-air collision, only to write the aircraft off on landing,
‘Rusty’ and his crew on a subsequent flight had a miraculous escape when their aircraft was blown upside down, over the target,
at Mailly-le-Camp; they also survived the Nuremberg raid on 30th March 1944, when 97 aircraft were lost – including about one quarter of 101 sqn strength that night.
