... Deryck Reginald Aldridge DFC
Sadly died on Sept 4th 2013 aged 91. I attended his funeral at Cromer Church on 18th September. I worked on brief occasions with Deryck at BT (then PO Telephones) between 1963 and 1966. However I remember well seeing his name as Plt Off D R Aldridge DFC on the WW2 honours board which hung in the old assembley hall at PGS when I was at the school between 1955 - 1960,(it is still there). Deryck took part in the Peenemunde bombing raids attacking the V2 missile production facility and there is a paragraph recalling this in Martin Middlebrook's book The Peenemunde Raids. Deryck is survived by his wife Audrey and 2 daughters and their families.
