Update March 2012:

"Sgt Lewis was 25 years old joined the RAF and received training at Cranwell. He was the son of Mr & Mrs F. St George Lewis of 10 Newhill Goodwick. His parents and body of Sgt Lewis were conveyed home from Northern Ireland for the burial at Llanwnda Cemetery. Sgt Lewis was a member of the Strumble Lodge of Freemasons. Incorrectly the report gives his loss as being "in the North Atlantic".This information forms part of my private project into military related family memorials in Pembrokeshire, currently I hold some 2,500 and cover the years from 1722 to 2004. Rgds, Owen Vaughan"

My thanks and appreciation to Owen for his contribution to the site.

 

Further Information

In 2014, the following pictures were sent in by Rita Rowlands, Gwynne's niece. My thanks and appreciation to Rita for her contributions. Of special note, thanks to Rita sending in the 59 Squadron Christmas card from Old Sarum, it is now confirmed that Gwynne was one of the longest serving members of the unit when lost. He would have certainly been well respected in his trade with much experience and no doubt advice for the "younger" (newer) aircrew.
