War hero Ray Johnston celebrates 100th birthday in Bourne




Retired RAF squadron leader Ray Johnston celebrated his 100th birthday last week.

The centenarian was born in Bristol and after working as a baker and barman, Ray joined the Royal Air Force aged 18 and then enjoying a distinguished career that took him all over the world.

His wartime service included being seconded to a Canadian Squadron, arriving in France the day after D-Day, with the squadron providing support just ten miles behind the front line.
