The RAF Association was sad to learn of the death of Ron Green, a Bomber Command veteran, who died at the age of 98 on 24 March.
Ron was born in Chalk Farm, London, in 1921. Upon joining the RAF in 1941 he trained as a pilot of Lancaster Bombers. He served with 550 Squadron, and was based at RAF North Killingholme during the Second World War.
It is understood that, immediately after the war, Ron was involved in transporting people from the UK to attend the Nuremburg Trials, and also flew missions dropping food-parcels into Berlin during the Berlin Blockade.
Ron married his wartime sweetheart, Peggy, in 1946, and left the RAF in 1947, having attained the rank of Flight Sergeant. He got a job as a Sales Rep for Brent Chemicals and worked his way up to Marketing Manager for the firm.
Ron was also an active member of the RAF Association, and was a former Chairman of his local branch in Windsor.
He is survived by his two daughters, Janice and Hilary, five grandchildren and six great grandchildren. The RAF Association extends its condolences to them, the rest of his family and his friends.
