Recruited in 1941 he is recorded as at Middle Lightwood Farm near Cotheridge, and as an 'Auth. User.' This allowed him petrol use. John and Robert were brothers.
Mr Boaz believes he was chosen because as a “country lad”, he knew the area well. He had ambitions to be an air gunner but had to stay at home to help with the farm so he remained in Samson patrol until he was stood down in December 1944.
John was interviewed for an article in The Worcester News in 2010.
