Air Chief Marshal Sir Augustus Walker GCB CBE DSO DFC AFC (deceased)

Born in 1912, Augustus Walker joined the RAF on a university commission in 1931. Serving with Bomber Command, he became a squadron leader and wing commander and was awarded both the DSO and DFC for his fine leadership, particularly on low level bombing raids, and for his invariable cheerfulness and his inspiring example. He lost his right arm when he and the crew of a fire tender approached a Lancaster which had caught fire on the runway and the 4000lb bomb suspended under the aircraft exploded. Despite this, he returned to active service with an artificial arm, and went on to take several key posts in the post-war RAF, including ADC to King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. He died on 11th December 1986.
