Sqadron Leader Ian Roxburgh
To anyone who remembers Ian Roxburgh, he sadly died on 7th September 2012, aged 95 years, at Crowthorne, Berkshire.
Ian, who was married to my father's sister Enid, had a long and interesting career in flying, joining the RAF in 1937 where he taught many pilots how to fly, both here in UK and also in Canada. In the war he was with Bomber Command (57 Squadron I think) and post war he was involved in test flying new designs of air planes. After retiring from the RAF in 1957, due to an accident which caused permanent paralysis on his left side, in a dangerously un-flyable plane, he worked for Ferranti helping to design aircraft instruments.
