Tribute paid to one of the last of the Few

Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier, the Chief of the Air Staff, has paid tribute to Squadron Leader Nigel Rose, who died on Sunday aged 99. He said today:

Squadron Leader Nigel Rose, as one of the sadly ever diminishing number of ‘The Few’, was part of an extraordinary cadre of brave and selfless people to whom we owe our freedom.  They remain an inspiration to the RAF of today. 

“Their bravery and sacrifice should never be forgotten – lest we forget.”
