Ted Holloway led a section of Bisley bombers on a raid to attack an enemy airfield in Tunisia. The leader of the squadron formation was Wing Commander Hugh Malcolm. None of the force of eleven aircraft survived and Hugh Malcolm was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross. Holloway later received the DFC. A few months later he survived a ditching in the Mediterranean. Post war he commanded a Canberra photographic reconnaissance squadron and created an unofficial record for a direct flight from the UK to Aden.
