DON BENNETT DFC
Matted size: 13 1/2" x 13 1/2"
The Pathfinder Force was conceived entirely by Don Bennett. In July 1942 he was given the task of melding several RAF bomber squadrons into No 109 Squadron, to form the new Pathfinder Force – initially flying Wellingtons and Mosquitos. His new concept revolutionized the RAF’s bombing tactics.
A seasoned commercial pilot before the war, Bennett first led 77 Squadron’s Whitleys then 10 Squadrons Halifaxes, the latter on a low-level attack on the Tirpitz in Trondhjem Fjord on 27 April 1942. Shot down his crew baled out, avoided capture and a month later were back in England. Within months Bennett’s 8 Group Pathfinders was formed and the RAF’s approach to target location and precision bombing was transformed.
