Pilot Officer Anthony Eyre

(90408)

A Flight: September 1939

Born at Lowestoft in 1918. He joined the No.615 (County of Surrey) Squadron, in 1938.

After a period of rest, he was transferred to the North Weald Wing in March 1942. His passage was short-lived since he was shot down on 8 March, during his first sortie by an Fw.190 and forced to a forced landing at Mardyck. Captured, he ended the war at the Stalag Luft III. He remained in the Royal Air Force after the war and took command of the Fairwood Common Air Force Base. He was killed on 16 February 1946, during a training flight on the Hawker Tempest NV787 following an engine shutdown at the landing near St. Athan airfield. He is buried at St. Cennydd Church, Llangennith, Wales.
