R.A.F SERGEANT M. V. GILDER or K.C.G GILDER
PHOTOGRAPH FOUND IN THE LATE VICTOR SUTCLIFFE DOCUMENTS
The photograph of Gilder was in my late father`s (Victor Sutcliffe) collection of photographs. Written on the back : Ken Gilder buried in Chadwell Cemetery.
I visited the cemetery today to find a M.V. Gilder – must be the same man.
After the comment: from Mr Cliff Cowin: I now know there is a Kenneth Charles George Gilder leading aircraftman R.A.F No: 639237 and was killed 01/01/1941 and buried in Chadwell-St-Mary Cemetery
I have no idea why he had this photo of a brave R.A.F man. Maybe he was my dad’s mate when he lived in Tilbury?.
Maxell Veron Gilder was a Sergeant in the R.A.F as a flight engineer No: 1456151 and was killed 19th February 1945 and buried in Chadwell-St-Mary Cemetery that is all I know.
Please add any comments: I like to know more about both Gilders and any family, and was they related in anyway.
