Albert Lane died on Friday, 20th April, after a long illness.
He was a long time member of our association and I think he joined the ACA in Birmingham when it was formed; he was at that time a member of both the RAFA and the Airgunners Association. Albert flew with 179 Squadron as an air gunner on Wellingtons in Coastal Command.
The funeral is to be held at the Robin Hood Cremetorium, Birmingham, at 11.00am on Tuesday the 8th May,2012.
