Johnny Wortley Flight Engineer


A smiling Johnny Wortley (Front row, 1st left) seen here while a “Erk” in 1943. Johnny is sitting besides N3721 with some of the crew of Arthur Aaron VC DFM.

 I have been informed that my very good friend Johnny Wortley passed away last week.  John was one of the first squadron members to make me welcome to the association over twenty odd years ago. A wonderful, kind man who’s smiling face and wit will be missed so much.

I will be putting together a bio on John’s career with 218 Squadron which began as ground crew and ended as a flight engineer on Avro Lancaster’s.

RIP old friend
