Alan Hather

I am a retired primary school teacher taking early retirement in 1998. Since then I have worked, part- time, for Hull University and the County Council’s Highway Department. My interest in the Air Force started when I was at school and I failed a medical for an R.A.F. Scholarship at Cranwell. I did serve in 2506 Squadron of the R.A.F Regiment Reserve at RAF Scampton for about 3 years. I had to leave as I injured my back whilst on exercise. This still bothers me today and I have had 2 operations on it recently.

At present I am secretary of the senior section at a local golf club and also secretary of the Lincolnshire branch of the retired members association of a teachers union.

I have always been interested in history and have extensively researched mine and my wife’s family tree. I heard about this project on Radio Lincolnshire and have enjoyed the research involved and I look forward to being involved with the project to its completion.
