Tom Webb-Bowen


Tom Webb-Bowen

Air Vice Marshal Sir Tom Ince Webb-Bowen KCB, CMG, RAF (17 January 1879 – 29 October 1956) was a senior commander in the Royal Air Force during the first half of the 20th century.

Webb-Bowen was commissioned into the Middlesex Regiment and later served with the Bedfordshire Regiment and the Madras Volunteer Corps. Finding himself unsuited to regimental life, Webb-Bowen learnt to fly in 1912. After several weeks as a Royal Flying Corps flight commander, he was posted to the Central Flying School as an instructor where he later served as the Assistant Commandant.
