    Default Sgt Thomas Idwal Roberts - 531079 - Died 21/1/42 - 202 Sqd

    Hi yet again,

    Same request as previous threads please:-

    Base;

    Aircraft Flown/Flown in;

    Serial No and Code;

    Possible Crashsite.

    Sgt Roberts is buried in Gibraltar (North Front) Cemetery.

    Was 202 and 203, Coastal Command Squadrons as they were known in Britain but just based at Gibraltar?

    I'll leave you all in peace, thanks for your time and brilliant efforts.

    Regards.

    Steve.
