Enlisted in the RAFVR in 1940 and was initially posted to the Wellington OTU at Basingbourn. Upon arrival of the US 91st Bomb Group in 1942, the 30 MU became the next move. The monotonous factory like Hercules engine overhauls were relieved by a DRO requesting volunteers for Combined Operation duties - this opened the path to Royal Air Force Chigwell and subsequent formation of 5301 B Mobile Signals Unit. Under control of 2nd TAF, 5301B landed in Normandy and began the incursion into the German homeland, with the never to be forgotten sights of decimation in the country. Before the Rhine crossing, a halt was caused by Hitlers final fling, The Battle of the Bulge . It was Christmas 1944, a period of the most intense cold known in Belgium for many years. A brief but exciting operational stop over at Hohe Acht was made in the Hartz mountains, close by the famous German Nuremburg Ring motor racing circuit. Our final halt was near the Luftwaffe airfield of Gotha, there was nowhere else to go - for the Ruskies Eastern border was only a short distance away. After demob in December 1945, Gerry Tyack went into the motor industry and became famous for his achievements in Hill Climbs and Speed Events. Two C Class International World Speed Records were taken in 1966, and to this day eight British E Class records are held with a Brabham B21C. Sir Ivor Broom opened his Wellington Aviation Museum in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, in 1990 and he was awarded the MBE in 1999.
