We are saddened to learn that Flight Lieutenant William Terence Clark has passed away this evening, only a few weeks after his 101st birthday. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends.
Terry was born in Croydon, in 1919. In March 1938, he joined No.615 squadron at Kenley and flew as an Air Gunner in Hawker Hectors on army co-operation duties. During the Battle of Britain, he was a Sergeant Air Gunner with No.219 squadron on Bristol Blenheims and later Beaufighters, and was for a time, based at Redhill. Clark was released from the RAF in November 1945.
He was one of the last living members of “The Few.”
Rest in peace Sir and thank you for your service.
