Title

Interview with Robin Wright

Description

Robin was born in Norwich on 16th June 1937. His father was in the Royal Air Force in Manchester, and then in Thetford Forest where the Merlin engines were stored. He finished his service at RAF Marham. Robin spoke about his school days. He remembered a bomber crashing about half a mile from his home with everyone on board being killed. At the end of the war Robin was undernourished and sent to a special day school in Colman Road where the children were fed three meals a day. In 1947 the family went on holiday to Hemsby, near Yarmouth where German prisoners of war were digging land mines and barbed wire from the beach. Robin got called up for National Service in 1955 and went to Cyprus with the army. Since leaving school he had had 22 jobs. He thought that Bomber Command had done wonderful job.
