Footnote

I am not 100% sure if this W/O Gillis is Frederick  Burdette “Gil” Gillis. Gil Gillis became a Flight Lieutenant and was posted to 417 Squadron not 421 Squadron.

Was Bill Williams all mixed up when he wrote this or there were two Gillises?

Maybe John Le May could shed some light on all this.

Stay tuned.
