Sqn Ldr Leslie V. Worsdell 1917-2008


Leslie Worsdell was the first apprentice flying instructor trained pre-war by Marshall of Cambridge. He played an important part in flying training over a career of 50 years in aviation, which included working as Marshall of Cambridge’s Chief Test Pilot where he was involved in the introduction of the C-130 Hercules aircraft to Royal Air Force Service. Leslie became a Director of Marshall in 1977 and served in that role until his retirement in December 1987.
