Wg. Cdr. Chris Legett

Sad to report yesterday the death of my erstwhile nav radar on 35 Sqn, Chris Leggett. Chris flew Canberras with 213 Sqn RAFG before joining the V-Force. He became a very well respected nav radar leader/instructor and flew with 617 Sqn. Chris battled a brain tumour and my thoughts go to daughters Karen and Tamsin and their families. I'll post funeral arrangements when available.

Sad news indeed. He was an excellent radar leader on 617 - straightforward and good company. Tamsin used to babysit for us. Deepest sympathy to all the family.

Sorry to hear this news, my condolences to his family. Chris was my Nav Radar when I was a very young Co on 617 Sqn. He was a steadying influence on the crew and would often climb up to the cockpit to make his feelings known! A true professional and a very nice chap. RIP Chris
