RAF Squadron Leader Bill McRae DFC, AFC was interviewed in 2012 and talked of his wartime experiences. Bill made light of the difficulties and dangers involved in flying bombers from rough desert airstrips over enemy territory. He said he was lucky to be flying in North Africa – RAF crews flying over Germany had it much worse. Bill flew more than 40 operations from North Africa and Malta. He then retrained as an instructor and was posted to Lossiemouth in Scotland to train new Wellington pilots. After the war, Bill resumed his career as a banker in Sydney, Australia.
