Thanks to Kevin for passing on the sad information, that Stanley Graham Wilson, D.F.C. passed away on the 29th of October last year at the splendid age of 93. Stanley was Wireless Operator with Ernest Abraham’s crew between February and May 1945.
Whilst the database is not yet complete for 1945, looking at Ops flown be Ernie Abraham, I would suggest that this was probably Stanley’s 2nd tour, completing approximately 20 Ops. Awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross on the 26th of October 1945, his citation reads very much like my own Fathers:
“This officer has completed numerous operations against the enemy, in the course of which he has invariably displayed the utmost fortitude, courage and devotion to duty.”
