    Default Defiant DR876 - Sergeant R.H.Gilpin RCAF

    I'm trying to find the first names of Sergeant R.H.Gilpin, RCAF, who was injured when his Defiant suffered an engine failure, and crashed into trees at Mortimer, in Berkshire. He was rescued from the burning wreck by two members of the Berkshire Regiment; both were later recommended for the George Cross, but this was later downgraded to the British Empire Medal.


    Any suggestions gratefully received.


    Many thanks,


    Andy
