    • Raymond Lindsay attended Portland Primary School.

      Flying Officer Lindsay's war service began on 29 December 1939 and ended on 12 February 1946. He served a total of 5 years 28 days of which 2 years 348 days was spent overseas.

      Six men who had been at school together in Portland, Whangarei joined the air force and trained in Canada. Charles Frederick Clarke (630828 NZ4310553), one of two surviving members of this group, attended a Portland Primary School reunion in November 1998 and researched details of this group with the intention of contributing a brick for the new memorial being constructed at Winnipeg in Canada to commemorate those who trained in Canada during World War 2. The name, date of birth, place of origin and date of death was to be inscribed on each brick. The Royal New Zealand Air Force crew members that Charles Frederick Clarke (630828 NZ4310553) is commemorating in this way are: Aubrey John Clarke (NZ429177) his brother; D'Arcy Clive Melville Ducker (NZ411749), Desmond Charles Holland (NZ427478), Douglas Jack McLean (NZ414654) and Raymond Anthony Lindsay (NZ392047).

      Auckland Museum Armoury Resource Centre, Vertical File - An article in the North Shore Advertiser 15 July 1999 which gives details about the money raised for New Zealand's contribution to the memorial building fund in Winnipeg, the opening ceremony and the role of Flight Lieutenant Bill Phillips and the president of the North Shore Brevet Club, Graeme Gemmell, in the project.

    • Tony Lindsay was awared the British Empire Medal for bravery during "Black Thursday" - the night when 40 bombers returning to Britain were forced to crash land due to appalling weather conditions. Lindsay recorded in his log "Visibility zero. Fog." Lindsay's 83 Squadron Lancaster aircraft crashed and burned at Wyton, eight hours after take off. While the impact of the crash threw Lindsay clear of the plane, he sustained a broken ankle and arm as well as burns to his face and upper body. Despite his injuries, he returned to the burning plane to rescue Greg Tanker, the bomber aimer who was badly burned and flight engineer, Greg Day. Tanker died later that day, but Day survived.

      Lindsay himself received medical treatment at the nearby RAF hospital at Ely and also was a patient of the reknown plastic surgeon, Archie McIndoe. When he was again fit to fly, Lindsay was based a Downham Market, Norfolk where he was navigator/bomber aimer with 635 Squadron.

      His log book records that he flew with Squadron Leader Peter de Wesselow on the night of the Dresden raids on 13-14 February 1945. Bomber Command laid two attacks during this night - three hours apart. On travelling to the second raid it was noted that they could navigate their path by following the huge glow made by the fires buring in the city of Dresden.

      At the end of the war, Lindsay had flown 30 raids with Squadron 635.

      After the war Lindsay returned to his family in Portland and then later moved to Whangarei. He was a quiet, thoughtful man, who remained close to his family all his life, only disclosing to those people close to him, the part that he played during the war.
