    Default ROBERT KITCHEN, ROBERT KITCHEN, 101 (R.A.F.) Sqdn

    Hi All,

    Can anyone help me trace what happened to the guy listed in the heading please. His CWGC details are
    Name: GRIFFITH ROBERT KITCHEN, ROBERT KITCHEN
    Initials: R K
    Nationality: Canadian
    Rank: Flight Sergeant (Air Gnr.)
    Regiment/Service: Royal Canadian Air Force
    Unit Text: 101 (R.A.F.) Sqdn
    Age: 31
    Date of Death: 16/09/1942
    Service No: R/84183
    Additional information: Son of Harry Kitchen Griffith and Caroline Griffith, of Grimsby, Ontario, Canada; husband of Miriam Griffith, of Grimsby.
    Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead

    I know he was flying in a Wellington BJ897 on Operation Essen on this date. The cause and crash site was not established and they flew out of Stradishall.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Thanks for that Henk. I gather that it was just another bombing raid over Germany. If anyone has any details of this raid i'd appreciate any information on it.

    Thanks
