Gerry Smith


We know very little about Gerry, or Smudge, as he was known to many of us after he passed out from RAF Locking. Les James said that Gerry was back at RAF Locking as an Instructor in 1961 / 2, that he had a car and was soon to be married to the daughter of a Flt Lt who was living in the Midlands.


Close to the wedding day Gerry drove to his girlfriend’s place to collect the wedding cake and on his return journey he was killed in a collision with a car.
