P/O Kenneth Roland Henry

Post by georgetanksherman » Tue Oct 01, 2019 5:01 pm

Looking for Aircraft Serial number if available on P/O Kenneth Roland Henry.

P/O Kenneth Roland Henry
R.C.A.F., J/20677
Died September 30, 1943
Assigned to R.A.F. No. 354 Squadron, flying out of Cuttack, India
Buried Madras War Cemetery, Chennai, India
From Iowa Falls, Iowa, U.S.A.

P/O K. R. Henry died from injuries received in an air accident sustained in an aircraft, P/O Henry was trying to manually lower the nose wheel when it retracted and crushed him. The squadron seems to only have flown the Liberator. Any and all help trying to find the serial number would truly be appreciated as I can not find the info

Cheers

Temujin and BSBSM, Thank You both for the info, I have been looking for the aircraft serial for some time, just could not find it, was about to give up, but thought I would give it one try and post it here, thank You both very much ! Apparently they called him Hank Henry at the squadron.
