Thomas Davidson - SSAFA Stories

Second World War Veteran Tom Davidson survived many daring bombing raids over Germany, whilst helping to defend our country and free Europe from the Nazis. The former Flight Engineer volunteered for his country at a time when the RAF was suffering heavy losses, including Tom’s only brother Frankie.

But a modest man, Tom tells his story to thank SSAFA, the charity he feels was responsible for helping save the life of his baby son while he was away on duty exactly 75 years ago.
