Flying Officer Bryan Wicks (40774) served with 56 Squadron RAF and fought in the Battle for France prior to his participation in the Battle of Britain.

In May 1940 his plane was badly damaged while destroying one of the enemy’s and he made a forced landing. He survived for some 12 days behind enemy lines masquerading as a peasant before breaking through. Following confirmation of his identity he was returned to England.

In 1942 he was posted to Malta as a Squadron Leader with 126 Squadron and was lost, aged 22, during one of the last major German raids on the island on 12 October 1942. He is remembered on the Malta Memorial.
