Tour Scotland Video Fernandes War Grave Sleepyhillock Cemetery Montrose
Tour Scotland video of Flying Officer, Robert Henry James Fernandes, gravestone in Sleepyhillock Cemetery on ancestry visit to Montrose, Scotland. Robert served with the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve and died the 24th of November 1943. By the end of 1941 more than half of Bomber Command aircrew were members of the RAFVR. Most of the pre war pilot and observer NCO aircrew had been commissioned and the surviving regular officers and members of the RAFO filled the posts of flight and squadron commanders. Eventually of the " RAF " aircrew in the Command probably more than 95% were serving members of the RAFVR.
