Monday 18th December – Tony Shipperlee
This month we have a very special guest Tony Shipperlee. Tony is now 96 years old and used to fly Supermarine Walrus aeroplanes (and others) in the Second World War. I have taken digital pictures from Tony’s prints and found some film as well of Walrus’s in action. We will also have his friend Jeremy Reed who was in the Navy on frigates and our honoury strut member Vice Admiral Ray Rawbone attending. Both Tony and Ray flew from Henstridge in the war.
