Subject:      "G" for George

 Dear Peter,

I am a novice at the Internet and e-mail so please excuse any mistakes. I accessed the internet site on "G" for George and would like to tell you about my late father, Albert Edward Llewellyn who was a member of 460 Squadron. Dad passed away on 18th September, 1996 after a 9 month battle with bone cancer.

Dad only flew one mission in "G" for George when "K" for Kitty was out of service. His pilot was Neil Peters and the bomb aimer was Harry Britton.

Dad was the navigator

Harry is still alive and living in Tweed Heads, NSW. I may be able to get his address from my mother Barbara, if you are interested, once she O.K.'s it with Harry.

I don't have any stories about "G" for George to pass on, but here is what Dad wrote in the family history he compiled.

Albert enlisted in the R.A.A.F. from Wagga NSW on 11th October, 1941, having been on the reserve list awaiting call-up for over twelve months. Then followed training in Australia and later at Crumlin, near London, Ontario, Canada where he obtained his Navigator's Flying Wing on 9th October, 1942 with the rank of Sergeant. Further training followed in England and Wales. On 24th June, 1943 he was posted to No 460 Royal Australian Air Force Lancaster Squadron where he subsequently flew on 27 operational bombing raids on Germany and Italy. One of these raids was carried out in "G" for George now preserved in the Australian War Museum, Canberra. He was commissioned as an officer on the completion of this tour of duty on 2nd December, 1943.

After twelve months' service as an Air Force Instructor in England, Albert returned to Australia, was discharged on 26th July, 1945 and returned to his employment with the Department of Lands.

Hope this is of some interest to you.

Bronwyn Ryan (nee Llewellyn)
