Flying Officer William McCall Girdwood

The following e-mail was published in the 9th August 2016 edition of Muirkirk Community News.

About a week ago I got in touch with a nephew of a 619 Squadron Lancaster pilot who’s aircraft was shot down over The Netherlands on 22nd June 1943. Sandly when the bomber crashed she took the lives of all seven crew. Together with this nephew and me we would like to erect a memorial in the near future and publish a book about their lives in the S E part of The Netherlands at so young an age. We would like to track down a Muirkirk was hero as also we have some information to share with the family. (more…)
