Note: Extract from “History of the Air Engineer” by Flt Lt Derek Stringman.

The interrelated fortunes of St Athan and the engineer branch were reflected by a memorial which was erected in No 2 Workshop on the camp. lt lists, on 22 boards, the decorations awarded to over 370 engineers•, including Norman Jackson’s Victoria Cross. As a heading to these boards, is a simple statement, the more effective because it stands in stark contrast to the enormous task undertaken:

In 1982, the OC of No 4 S of TT, W g Cdr PG E Murray, generously proposed that the memorial be transferred to the present Air Electronics and Air Engineer School, a project which received the enthusiastic support of the AOC Training Units, AVM FDG Clark. On the 30 November 1982 the memorial was re-erected at RAF Finningley.

The Flight Engineer Memorial moves from St Athan to Finnnngley in 1982. Sqn Ldr Rose of No 4 S of TT hands over Norman Jackson’s VC citation to Sqn Ldr Mike Cawsey, OC Air Engineer Training Squadron,

Note: The memorial was subsequently moved to 3 FTS RAF Cranwell in 1995 and is now on display at the Newark Air Museum.
