    Default F/Sgt T Jones AG 23 died 26.11.1943

    New here, so sorry if I make errors.
    Looking for information on the above Air Gunner served with 102 Sqdn at this time I believe. Buried at St Cross Parish Church Appleton Thorn, that is RNAS/RAF Blackcap/Stretton's local Church.
    Thank you.

    Welcome aboard Roundhead.

    Sgt Jones was lost on Halifax II HR804 DY-T of 102 Squadron, which crashed whilst returning to RAF Pocklington from a mission to Frankfurt. The Halifax came down at Warter Priory. Three of the crew were killed, including Sgt Jones who seems to have been the rear gunner.

    Regards

    Simon

    Hi Simon,
    Many thanks for that information, I thought you & others would like to know that his memorial stone inscription reads:
    'Greater love hath no man than, that a man lay down his life for his friends', perhaps there is more to the story than we shall ever know.
    Kind regards,
    Roundhead
