About this comment made…
My mother often spoke fondly about a cousin who left for the war and died on Sept. 29 or Nov.29 1944 at 22 years of age. His name was Sargeant Harold Murphy R.C.A.F. I believe he was with the 128th Squadron (Pilot Officer – graduating as an Observer). How would I go about finding out more about him. My mother always said his plane was shot down at sea. His service was # J/95450
