Flight Lieutenant Bill Reid V.C.

On 3 November, 1943, Flight Lieutenant. Reid captained Lancaster "O for Oscar" on a 600 bomber raid on Dusseldorf.  While passing over Holland, his aircraft was attacked by an Me.110 nightfighter.  Bill Reid was seriously wounded by shell fragments and the Lancaster badly damaged, but still flyable.  Bill and his crew pressed on to their target.  For his courage, tenacity, and leadership, Bill Reid was awarded the Victoria Cross.  This brave but modest Scot passed away in 2001.
