    Default Sgt Kimber Hill1053799 106 Sqdn

    sgt Hill was KIA 25/3/42 and I am trying to find out just what his role on the aircraft was. To date I have Navigator, Bomb Aimer, W/Operator and Air Gunner.
    Can anyone tell which of these (or cobination) is correct.
    Thanks
    Bob

    Hi Bob,

    While carrying out some research on the Runnymede Memorial, I came across 1053799 Sergeant JOHN Kimber HILL RAFVR KIA 26/3/1942 106 Sqn. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has him listed as Kimber HILL, the Royal Air Force John Kimber HILL.
