    Default Sir Nicholas Winton, MBE

    Hello All,

    I´m looking for any info about Sir Winton´s wartime RAF service. I know fact that he entered RAF service in 1942 and served like a navigation instructor in RAF South Cerney and in the late 1944 he trained french pilots at La Rochelle.

    any info will be warmly appreciated

    TIA
