Farewell to Second World War veteran Dot who has died at age of 103

by Henry James (October 2021)

A MAGHULL resident and an RAF veteran from the Second World War has died at the age of 103.

Known locally as Dot, Dorothy Penn served as a typist at RAF Bridgnorth at the time of the Second World War.

In 2012 she made headlines when she was awarded her war medals by the Mayor of Maghull – 67 years after the war finished.

The Champion reported on her 100th birthday, which saw Dot celebrate at the Maghull British Legion Club with friends, family and neighbours.

She was joined by more than 80 people and received hundreds of cards and gifts from family and friends.

Dot, who was also a lifelong Everton fan, also received a special football shirt when she turned 100.
