Hello there,
I wonder if anyone has a subscription to this site & could be so kind as to look for the information on the following chap for me please?? I did the free search & his name is certainly there. (I am helping an elderly friend with this research hence my reluctance to buy a subscription).

CYRIL HYRAM TOWNSEND: RAF: Died 16/17 August 1944 on a bombing raid aged 20 years. Sgt: No 1623085.

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Skylark.

The basic information is the same as you would find on CWGC
http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/1808960/TOWNSEND,%20CYRIL%20HIRAM

There is a small bit of additional information on the record -
Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve - 102 Squadron - Bomber Command
Aircraft
Mark: III
Code: DY-Y
Type: Halifax
Serial: NA504

Thank you Elaine,
I had tried to find out if there was any more in depth info on Cyril on the site, but I am asked to subscribe before the info is revealed.
Thank you again.
