A fitting farewell to a very brave man, He was going to be cremated alone with no one present but after a plea put out on SM he got the send off he deserved, Flew 5 bombing missions before the age of 20!. RIP sir and thank you for your service.

Those turret gunners on Lancasters must have had the deadliest jobs in WW2, sitting targets for enemy fighter planes.
