Hugh Verity Bust Unveiled

Further to our News report in August, the bust of Squadron Leader Hugh Verity has now been formerly unveiled by his eldest daughter, Jane. Hugh served at RAF Tangmere during 1943 as commanding officer of No 161 Squadron’s ‘A’ (Lysander) Flight. The short take-off and landing Lysander aircraft were used to transport agents into and out of French fields at night. Hugh successfully carried out twenty nine of these clandestine operations, survived the war and retired from the RAF as a Group Captain in 1965.

The bust was modelled for the Museum by Jack Gardner from Worthing who was in attendance for the short unveiling ceremony. The photograph shows Jane by the bust with Jack Gardner (centre) and Alan Bower, the Museum’s Director.
