    Default Watton War Grave

    Hi, can anyone help. I help to look after a number of War Graves at St. Mary's Church in Watton, Norfolk. One grave is that of an American who served with Bomber Command and want to try and find out if he has any surviving relatives, can anyone help ?
    The info I have is: Sergeant Arthur Henry Junior Elliot, Pilot, Service No 605462 who served with 21 Squadron and was killed on the 29/8/1942.
    Cheers

    There is a shipping record for the following family:

    SS President Wilson
    9 July 1928
    Singapore to New York
    Arthur Henry Elliot b1893 Born Assumption, Illionois
    Kathleen Morrow Elliot b1897 Born Minok Illinois
    Arthur Surry Elliot b 17 Aug 1920 Born Penang S.S.
    Rosamund Patricia Elliot b1923 Born Surabaya, Java

    Their address in the USA is given as Milford, PA.

    So he was born in Malaya by the looks of it, yeah I know the name is a little out.
    I'll see what else I can find in ancestry.com etc
