BBC History Magazine - - WWI Eyewitness Accounts -

Wem­b­ley-born Vic­tor served as a mid­ship­man aboard HMS Bri­tan­nia from 1914–15, then on air­ships with the Royal Naval Air Ser­vice un­til 1918.

When the war was over, he moved on to a dis­tin­guished ca­reer in the RAF, ris­ing to air mar­shal be­fore re­tir­ing in 1951. An ap­par­ently clair­voy­ant ex­pe­ri­ence he had while fly­ing in­spired him to be­come an au­thor and lec­turer on ex­trasen­sory per­cep­tion and the para­nor­mal – and was the ba­sis for a film, The Night My Num­ber Came Up (1955).
