Subject: [CHS] THOMAS GOWER GUNN KIA 1942 tracing relatives
Date: Tue, 24 Jun 2003 11:30:38 +0100
Not strictly Cheshire, but in Liverpool and possible that a relative could
be in the Wirral area. Can anyone help with this plea for assistance
received on an Allied Air Forces website for WW2 that I frequent:
"Time is very short I am afraid but I have to try one last time.
I do voluntary work for BBC Radio Merseyside. Some weeks back I took a call
from Holland. The Mayor of a Dutch town was trying to trace relatives of
Sergeant Thomas Gower Gunn because they have erected a memorial to the crew
of a Halifax aircraft lost June 30th 1942 near their town.
Sergeant Gunn was a member of 405 Canadian Sqn, but RAF and not RCAF. He
came from Liverpool. Despite three broadcasts and it appearing in the local
paper, we have still not found any relatives. Had we done so, the Dutch
people were going to fly them over at their expense for the unveiling which
takes place on the 30th of June. As I said time is running out but I have
only just been told about this site.
The local RAFA have tried to help and will send a representative. It would
be nice if a relative could be found though. Any ideas?
