My uncle Pilot Officer Charles Willard Gomm was a Canadian who died during operations with No. 32 (Fighter) RAF flying out of Friston or West Malling.
The telegram received by my grandmother said that he died of shock and exposure following injuries sustained in air operations on July 8th, 1942.

His RAF logbook shows he flew Hurricane 5256 (or S256) with the Duty entered as "G.C.I with Havoc". I know Havocs flew out of West Malling with 1452 Flight and I think the GCI means ground control intercept.
Charles flew mostly night fighters including Boulton Paul Defiants, Blenheims and then the Hurricane.

His story is rather interesting as he travelled from Singapore to Cairo, Paris then New York and then Home to New Westminster to volunteer.

My father served with the Canadian Army in England and Europe and lost this brother and another in the Phillipines. At 90 he wishes to know more about the action resulting in the death of his brother Charles.

Thanks in advance for any information or leads.
