An interview with Eric Carter, No.81 Squadron RAF, who flew Hurricanes in Russia, WW2

This was a two-part interview I conducted with Eric Carter, a Pilot in No.81 Squadron Royal Air Force at his home in 2015.

We covered many subjects (joining RAF, training, service) including more detailed information on some of his missions including the Lend lease with Russia and ultimately flying with the Russians against the Axis as part of "Force Benedict". He then proceeded to fly with 81.Squadron in Burma. He also talks about his return home and the anti-servicemen feeling as he saw it.

Excellent MP

I've only listened to part one so far, but great stuff!

Incidentally, I have a copy of his book.

When you next contact him, please forward my warm regards.

Cheers
Brian
