King and Queen send birthday wishes to Richard from Kineton





TO celebrate his 100th birthday, Richard Skepper, of Kineton received over 1,000 cards and presents from all over the world, plus a card from the King and Queen and a possible historic RAF flypast is lined up in the future.

‘Dick’ – as family and friends call him – joined the RAF in 1942 as ground crew where he maintained Stirling bombers and later moved onto Lancasters which were to be his pride and joy during his five years with Bomber Command – and for the rest of his life.
