Memorial service for Typhoon pilot killed in WW2 mission

Post by Moggy »

A memorial service has been held to mark 80 years since the death of a Canadian airman shot down over Guernsey.

Pilot Lt John Saville was hit during a mission to take out a German radar in occupied Guernsey ahead of D-Day on 6 June 1944.
