.....SOLD.....1942 Air Commentary by Group Captain W. Helmore Air Commodore William Helmore Ph.D., M.S., F.C.S.[1], F.R.Ae.S., CBE 1894 - 1964 was an engineer who had a varied and distinguished career in scientific research with the Air Ministry and the Ministry of Aircraft Production during the Second World War, as a broadcaster, and for two years as Member of Parliament for Watford 1943–1945. He has an impressive list of patents to his name in various countries. In 1931 Helmore was awarded the Groves Prize for Aeronautical Research.
Helmore’s contribution, to Britain’s war effort was not confined to scientific research. He had earlier broadcast such events as the Schneider Trophy air races and reviews, and during the war his accounts of the RAF’s work were heard frequently. His most notable commentary was when he broadcast an eye-witness account of the D-Day landings in Normandy, the first 'live', (recorded live onto transcription disc for transmission later), broadcast from over the invasion fleet on 6 June 1944, reporting overhead from an RAF Mitchell bomber
