Ken Worsley

Ken Worsley had little elementary education as a boy in east London because of the bombing during the blitz. He lived with his widowed mother and sister, just the three of them. He was an Air Cadet from 1941-1944. He entered the Royal Air Force as aircrew but then the war ended, so he re-mustered to join the ground crew as an engineer - finally ending up with the Lancaster Squadron, Mildenhall. He was demobbed in August 1948.

About Book

Surviving the Blitz and spending his wartime youth in the Air Training Corps gave K. H. Worsley a will to do his bit that outlived the Second World War and lasted into the Berlin Airlift and beyond.

Leaving Hainault in his native Essex, he joined the RAF in 1944 and, serving from East Anglia to West Berlin, he has packed into one life the experience of war, peace and of how British people had to kick the dust of war from their heels but had no idea the sixties were coming.


Ken Worsley has written something more than a memoir. With an eye for the historic, he has presented readers with an illuminating new account of a time too easily forgotten: everything from the transition from propeller-driven to jet aircraft, from Sten guns to Sterlings, and the aftermath of the Second World War turning into the Cold War.
