Air Commodore ‘Dusty’ Miller was awarded the DFC after completing a tour of operations flying the Beaufighter on anti-shipping patrols in the Adriatic. Based on the east coast of Italy, he attacked barges and re-supply vessels as they endeavoured to support the retreating German army. After the war, Miller flew fighters and was one of the first pilots to use an ejector seat when he baled out of a Meteor. As a wing commander he joined the V-Force and commanded a Valiant squadron before becoming the station commander at Finningley. He retired in 1969 to go into the building industry.
