  1. GIBBS, William Robert…From Peterborough, Ontario. Killed in Action Feb
    28/45 age 21…no known grave,his name has been inscribed on the Runnymede
    War Memorial, Englefield Green, Egham, Surrey, England

    * He may have been flying a Hawker Typhoon near Uden, Holland at the time of his death.

    • I am sure he was flying a Hawker Typhoon. That’s what 440 Squadron was flying at the time.
      I did not go into details. I just wanted to concentrate on Torbay and those exclusive pictures.
      I will have more on this.
      Greg is just discovering his grandfather’s service record in the RCAF.
      He was also stationed at Bagotville with No. 1 O.T.U.
      This is another chapter further down the airstrip…

      Thanks for the comment.

    • I contacted Richard. His grandfather is Harry Hardy DFC. I added Gibbs’ picture taken fron Harry Hardy’s logbook.
      Richard sent me these links to the videos he made of his grandfather’s experience.

      Part One

      Part Two

      Part three

      At the end, he is quite moved.
