Pilot’s MBE and Model Donated to the Museum

Sergeant Geoffrey Hill was a Battle of Britain pilot who served with No 65 Squadron.  Commissioned in November 1940, he was shot down over France in February 1941 and made a Prisoner of War (PoW). For the remainder of the war he was held in various PoW camps and eventually ended up in Colditz Castle (the prison used by the Germans for their most difficult prisoners), from which he was freed in 1945.  After the war he was awarded an MBE for distinguished service during his time as a prisoner. Whilst in Colditz, an Australian fellow prisoner made a Spitfire model carrying the markings of Hill’s aircraft.

Son John and great grandchildren James and Jessica Healey are seen in the photograph with the Museum’s Chairman, Group Captain David Baron (left) on the occasion of the presentation to the Museum of Geoffrey Hill’s MBE and the model of his Spitfire.
