Flt-Lt Cyril Beresford Wincott





b. 1896; RNAS in WWI, then went out to East Africa for 3 years to make his fortune growing coffee, but as the fortune did not materialise came back and joined the RAF. Pilot at Martlesham Heath (in 1931 he was Flight Commander, 22 Squadron),

later Air Commodore, Ministry of Aircraft Production during WWII, Officer 'in charge of the West Coast, USA' in 1943 (sounds like a nice job) and Air Attache to Moscow (sounds like a horrid job) after WWII; died 1972
