Distinguished Cadet Kenneth Bickers DFC: 6 June 1922 –24 March 1944

The Museum was fortunate to connect with John Bickers, the brother of Ken and begin a dialogue back and forth between here and the UK.  John has been kind enough to share some great photos and memorabilia, but most importantly he sent a copy of the family’s heartwarming story of their search for his brother’s crash site. Attached is his story. Click the link below to read the entire story.
