    Default Robert Bell HUNT, R.C.A.F.

    hello,

    This R.C.A.F. aircrew is buried in the Calais Canadian War Cemetery :

    Name: HUNT, ROBERT BELL
    Initials: R B
    Nationality: Canadian
    Rank: Flight Lieutenant (Nav.)
    Regiment/Service: Royal Canadian Air Force
    Unit Text: 7 (R.A.F.) Sqdn
    Age: 34
    Date of Death: 20/05/1944
    Service No: J/21890
    Additional information: Son of Harry and Harriet Hunt; husband of Alice M. E. Hunt, of Coutts, Alberta.
    Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
    Grave/Memorial Reference: 2. H. 12.

    The Squadron Operations Record Book mentions he was a second pilot.

    Can one of our Canadian expert advise whether he was a navigator or a pilot ?

    TIA

    Joss
