Eric Guy Titterton (22nd December 1911-28th September 2010)
RAF Service 1942-1946
After joining the RAF in 1942 Eric was trained as an aircraft engineer. This lead to him working on the Short Stirling bomber.
As a talented amateur artist he was privileged to have painted emblems on several aircraft e.g. Y-Yorkshire Rose and Z-Zebra, with an appropriate picture. He was a member of 620 Squadron and designed the squadron badge which can be seen in the floor of the aisle at St Clement Danes Church.
The ground crew and aircrew had a very close relationship and not only worked together but socialised together. The friendships made then lasted forever. They had reunions on a very regular basis. One of the last reunions was held in Gloucestershire and they were entertained by the USAF at Fairford, one of the stations where they had served.
After leaving the RAF in 1946 Eric continued in the family pork butchers leading a full and active life only retiring from playing golf at the age of 88. In 2009 at the age of 98 he went into a residential home.
He will be dearly missed by his two sons, daughter, 7 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and friends.
