    Default Kenneth Gray

    I am trying to trace a Ken Gray who was a pilot we believe served with AVM Don Bennett and subsequently stayed in close contact after the war. He tragically died in the late 1960's while driving one of Bennett's Fairthorpe sports cars and was a member of Fairoaks and Blackbushe Flying Clubs.

    We have been trying to trace him through the AnC*try and hve found the following and would be grateful if anyone can assist in seeing if this is him or indeed anyone else who might emerge as a possible; Kenneth W Gray DOB 16 May 1921 SGT RAF VR SVC No 754518

    Many thanks

    Rather than asking "or indeed anyone else who might emerge as a possible" would it not be prudent to those you seek aid from to say who you have eliminated from previous help given.

    Fair Comment Ross, to be perfectly honest I had forgotten I had previously asked on here thinking I had done so on another board, in which case my humble apologies. That said I am grateful to those who have replied to my query regarding the elusive Ken Gray, thanks again one and all.
