Tour Scotland Sherven War Grave Sleepyhillock Cemetery Montrose

Tour Scotland video of Sergeant, Vernon Thomes Sherven, gravestone in Sleepyhillock Cemetery on ancestry visit to Montrose, Scotland. Vernon served with the Royal Canadian Air Force and died on the the 1st of June 1944. Canadian bomber squadrons began participating in the war effort in 1941 and were attached to RAF Bomber Command groups. Canada, however, wanted its own identifiable presence in Allied air operations overseas, and it did not want its air force to be merely a source of manpower for the Royal Air Force. To this end, 6 (RCAF) Group was formed on 25 October 1942 with eight squadrons.
