    Default "Roy" Albrecht, Athing on this Airman please ?

    Hello,
    Anything known on this airman please ?
    Squadron Leader Adolf Royston "Roy" Albrecht.
    I found his service number was 86218 and he was born i910 and died in 1994.
    From a link on the www I found that he was linked to 609 Squadron in early WW2. He was a pre WW2 airman.
    In the war I beleive that he was involved with the removal of bombs from a damaged hangar.
    At some time he received injuries.
    In Air Force Lists I found him under Admin and Special Duties
    Also more recently the St. Mylor Churchyard Preservation Group has found a memorial plaque but hs name does not appear in the graveyard survey ?

    Many thanks
    Alex

    Meteorology is a science; good meteorology is an art!
    We might not know - but we might know who does!
