Sqn Ldr Lawrence “Benny” Goodman was the last British wartime 617 Squadron pilot when he died last July at the ripe old age of 100. He was honoured yesterday with a memorial service at the RAF church, St Clement Danes in Strand, London. There is a report on the services TV station, Forces.net, which you can find here, with contributions from various attendees and his son, Robert Goodman. The good news conveyed by Robert in the film is that Benny’s medals and logbook will shortly go on display at the RAF Museum in Hendon.
