Seldon, George Edward of Belton
« on: Friday 17 January 14 14:50 GMT (UK) »
I'm Belgian, living near Neerwinden, and looking for information on the family "Seldon" of Belton. George Seldon, sergeant in the RAF, was 26 years old when he died in May 1940. His name is mentioned on the Runnymede Memorial. He was a member of the 59 Sqn and crew member of Croydon Chamberlain and Frank Hands.
He was the son of Harry and Kathleen Seldon, of Belton, Rutland. I'm doing together with the cousin of the pilot Croydon Chamberlain a research about what happened that fatal day in May 1940. We've discovered important details. According to our info George Seldon is buried as unknown at Hotton War Cemetery in Belgium.
Regards,
Alex.

Good afternoon,

Thank you for your help. Do you know if I can find a family tree of the Seldon family somewhere?
Greetings from Belgium,

Alex.
