Group Captain Peter Reginald Casement was born in County Antrim in 1921 and educated at Marlborough College. His flying career began in 1939 when he learnt to fly Tiger Moths in Coventry; he undertook his first solo flight after just 11 hours and 30 minutes of training. He joined No 61 Squadron in 1941 and by the end of the war he had flown most of the aircraft used by the RAF at the time and was one of the few pilots to have seen service throughout WW2 - only 30 percent of aircrew who flew with Bomber Command survived.

Peter took part in many strategically important missions during the war. On May 30 1942, flying with 61 Squadron, he piloted one of 73 Lancaster Bombers engaged in the first of Bomber Command's 'thousand bomber raids' on Germany. Later that year, during the Battle of the Atlantic he assisted in the destruction of a U-Boat. The bomber he piloted as Acting Flight-Lieutenant was the first to bring back photographic evidence of the sinking of a U-boat. These historic photographs plus his hand written descriptions are in an album included in the lot.

Awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross in October 1941, with the Bar in August 1942; the Distinguished Service Order followed in December 1942. The citation for his 1942 DSO states: 'Flight Lieutenant Casement is an outstanding captain and pilot. He has completed numerous operational missions, during which he has attacked highly important industrial targets in Germany; he has also completed several patrols over the Atlantic and assisted in the destruction of a U-boat'.

After the war Peter was posted to Amman in the Middle East, returning to the UK in 1948 to continue his RAF career in St Eval, Cornwall and at Joint Service Defence College Latimer, Buckinghamshire. Appointed to the rank of Wing Commander, the youngest in the RAF at the time, he served in Cyprus during the Suez Crisis. His later career included stints at RAF Binbrook, working back home in Northern Ireland where he was attached to HMS Sea Eagle, working with Nato Submarines and RAF Mountbatten in Plymouth. Peter ended his career as Station Commander of RAF Topcliffe in Yorkshire in 1966.

The final sentence of his 1942 DSO citation comments: 'Throughout his operational career, this officer has displayed great efficiency and devotion to duty which have proved a source of encouragement to his fellow captains'. When Peter retired in 1968, he had flown 3,800 hours in 27 different aircraft.
