Sidney 'Tim' Yates
Kelvin Price writes "On his death a few years ago, his daughter / my former wife gave me as a memento a pencil drawing, some 15 x 19 inches in size. It shows a WW2 Wellington bomber under ack-ack fire attacking an industrial complex at night. The registration mark on the Wellington's fuselage is: M (RAF roundel) BU
Three cones of searchlights are in the drawing.
Also visible are a factory building, circular oil-storage tanks and what seem to be electricity pylons.
The crest of 214 Squadron plus motto 'Ultor in Ungris' (should be UMBRIS) are depicted at top left of the picture.
There is also a penned signature at the foot of the drawing but this is difficult to decipher.
It seems to be something like "M B Studer(?), 214 Squadron".
My father-in-law obviously greatly valued the drawing as it had been framed by a specialist in Shrewsbury quite some time ago."
