William de Goat by Squadron Leader Brian Waite Raf
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


'Then we were up in the air; I tried to move around but was restrained. I really was special - they even took me flying!' William certainly was a special goat and here he tells his story of the time he spent looking after his boys of 609 (West Riding) Squadron of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force from 1941-1945. With a little help from Brian Waite, who interjects here and there to fill us in on some of the details, we get an amazing picture of what this special, morale-boosting creature experienced as the official mascot and the highest ranking officer to serve with 609 (West Riding) Squadron. Brian Waite was born in Grantham and was educated at the local King's School and at Loughborough College of Physical Education. Following a decade teaching in Kent, he was commissioned into the Royal Air Force. He commanded 609 (WR) Squadron as a Reservist, where he 'found' William. He is married to Louise and lives in North Yorkshire.
