Year 4 are learning about a boy who lied about his age so he could become a soldier in World War 2.
His name was Robert Lea, he was a Petty Officer Flyer – a Telegraphist Air Gunner in the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm flying Swordfish in 836 Naval Air Squadron Flight.
Year 4 have been looking at the model swordfish plane he flew in and the picture above of him in his navy uniform. They have been asked as part of their lesson to re-write the story from the characters point of view.
RIP Robert 11/12/1925 – 13/09/2017
