History

Gordon Griffith (1914-2000) served as the navigator of a bomber crew during World War II. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in May 1942 and was discharged in October 1945. During his service, he belonged to the 76th Squadron of the Royal Air Force. As detailed in a letter from Jack Bath (who served as a Mid Upper Gunner) to Tom Kennedy, the crew was formed in early 1944. The airfield was located in the village of Holme-on-Spaudling in Yorkshire, England. Their first aircraft was the Halifax III, which survived sixty missions. Griffith lived in Lincoln, Ontario during the later years of his life.
