Monty Walters joined 81 Squadron as a  Warrant Officer PR Mosquito pilot in 1946. This after having served time as a Bomber Pilot in WW2. Monty said that he had emigrated to Australia after leaving the RAF, but the Australian Government denied this, saying that they did not have a Ball and Chain heavy enough to slow Monty down. Seriously though, Monty is a very much respected Member of our Association and we are pleased to exhibit some of his photographs below. Please click on images to enlarge:-
