In this episode I talk with Alan Harrison about his service in the Royal Air Force through the 1960’s, 1970’s and early 1980’s. Alan trained and served initially as an Air Signaller, and spent a considerable time on Avro Shackleton maritime patrol bombers.
He then trained as a Navigator-Radar Operator, and following several courses he was posted to No. 101 Squadron RAF, flying as part of a crew on Avro Vulcan bombers.
Alan talks in depth about both the maritime and the nuclear bomber roles, and what it was like to be part of the Cold War strike force.
