Tributes to 93-year-old Cleethorpes Dambuster
TOMORROW we pay tribute to a 93-year-old Cleethorpes man who flew with the Dambusters and in the Battle of Britain.
Warrant Officer Rowland Smith - known to all as Ron - was just 19 when he joined the Air Force as a rear gunner, or Tail End Charlie, which was one of the most dangerous roles in the Force.
Paying tribute to him in tomorrow's paper, his nephew Peter Pounds recounts some of his stories from the Second World War, while Pathe footage from the time will be posted here at www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk.
Also in tomorrow's paper, we will be running a full round-up of pictures and stories from your Comic Relief fundraising efforts - with additional picture galleries here at thisisgrimsby.co.uk.
