    Default G/C Arthur James Biggar (32168)

    Hi all, could anybody give me more information about this fighter pilot?
    I know that he was the CO of 111 SQ till Feb 1941 and then no info about him. I would like to know anything about his service afterwards.

    I have only following info:

    T/W/C w.e.f. 1.3.41 - LG 11.3.41
    T/G/C w.e.f. 1.11.47 - LG 18.11.47

    TIA

    Arthur James Bigger took command of 111 Squadron in October 1940 and stayed with it until February 1941. He remained in the RAF after the war, graduating from the Joint Services Staff College and the Army Staff College. He was made a CBE (2.1.56) and retired from the RAF on 1 June 1958, as a Group Captain. He died in 1975.
