"When James Pelly-Fry joined the Royal Air Force in 1935 it was the culmination of his abiding passion, since boyhood, for 'aeroplanes'. Training as a pilot in Britain James then went to Egypt to join No. 216 Squadron where he was exposed to the mysteries of flying the Vickers 'Valentia' - a large, twin-engine, troop-carrying bi-plane! His career in the RAF although following a relatively normal progression for pre-war and WWII service was, however, liberally sprinkled with appointments and operations that gave him the opportunity to view the events of the European War from Command level as well as Operational."
