TO THE BEST OF MY MOTHERS KNOWLEDGE THE AIRCRAFT WENT DOWN IN HOLLAND. MY UNCLE NEVER IDENTIFIED. MY MOTHER MET A FEW YEARS AGO AN AIR WAR HISTORIAN WHO GAVE HER FULL DETAILS OF THE AIRCRAFT AND DETAILS OF ITS LAST FLIGHT. I REMEMBER AS A CHILD SEEING A PHOTO OF A GRAVE FOR THE CREW. MY UNCLE 's NAME IS ON THE BOARDS AT RUNNYMEAD RAF MEMORIAL.

I HAVE NOW CHECKED WITH MY MOTHER WHO CONFIRMS THAT SGT JOHN VICTOR ROBINSON WAS A FLIGHT ENGINEER ON A STIRLING BOMBER WHO WAS MISSING IN ACTION DURING A RAID ON KASSEL IN AUGUST 1942.

HE WAS AGED 23 AND LIVED IN A SMALL COTTAGE IN KENT WITH A WIFE CALL 'JUDY' THERE APPEARS TO BE SOME DOUBT IF THAT WAS HER REAL NAME. THEY HAD ONE CHILD BY THAT UNION 'HEDLEY'

HEDLEYWAS A COMMISIONED OFFICER IN THE STAFFORDSHIRE REGT AND WAS MARRIED AT DOVER CASTLE, POSS 1967.

MY MOTHER STATES SHE HAD A PHOTOGRAPH OF THE PILOTS AND THREE UNIDENTIFIED AIRMANS GRAVE IN THE NETHERLAND, THERE WAS A ROW OF POPLAR TREES CLOSE BY.
