Peter Tunstall (1918–2013) joined the RAF in 1937 and after pilot training joined No. 61 Squadron at Hemswell, Lincolnshire, flying the twin-engined Hampden bomber. During the retreat to Dunkirk and the days that followed, he attacked targets in northern France. He was captured by the Germans in 1940 and held prisoner until 1945. After the war, Tunstall remained in the RAF as a flying instructor. He retired in 1958 and joined Laker Airways before moving to South Africa, where he continued to fly and secured a number of parts as a professional actor.
