NOVEMBER 17,
BANGOR AIRMAN PRESUMED KILLED
Flight-Engineer-Sergt. D. B. George
ANOTHER gallant young Bangor airman has made the supreme sacrifice. He is Flight-Engineer-Sergeant David B. George, 8, Donaghadee Road, Bangor. Missing since his Lancaster was brought down in air-operations over Duisburg in January last, official intimation has now been received that his death may be presumed. Aged 22, he was educated at Bangor Central P.E. School, and on leaving school entered the service of the Post Office in the engineering department at Telephone House. He joined the R.A.F. in December, 1943, trained in England and on the completion of this training led the cadet parade of his unit and was recommended for a commission with a very high percentage in the examinations. He had taken part in a number of operational flights. He was a popular young man of much promise and had many friends who deeply regret his death. Sympathy goes out to the family in their bereavement.
