    Default RAAF personnel, Gilgil Cemetery, Kenya April 1942

    Would anyone have any information re these three RAAF personnel buried in Gilgil CWGC Cemetery

    Three RAAF Sergeants date of death 23 April 1942 - an assumption would be a 'crew', but I have no further info, just noticed their names whilst checking out other info re Gilgil GWGC, they are the only Australians buried there
