Flight Sergeant Bryce Watson’s Granddaughter flies BE505
We were privileged to host Courtney Dohnt (all the way from Australia) the granddaughter of Flight Sergeant Bryce Watson who flew and fought in BE505 which he christened ‘Pegs’ after his girlfriend Peggy (later to become his wife). Courtney had an emotion filled flight in formation with our other Hurricane, R4118. After we broke formation she got to fly her grandfather’s aircraft, before a few aerobatics and then returning to West London Aero Club. The day was made even more special by Eugenie Brooks whose father, Pilot Officer John William Brooks DFC DFM was on 174 Squadron with Bryce and also flew BE505. She bought along a variety of photos of ‘Pegs’ and Bryce to share.
