Hi - this is my first post on this site - am hoping someone out there may be able to help in some way? I have just found out that a member of my family was killed onboard the Almeda Star 17/1/1941, until now i only knew that he had died in the war. Leading Airman FAA/FX 80545 Royal Navy Guy Gordon John Warburton Aged 21. Apparently he was training to be an observer. I know that the Almeda was sunk by the U-69 and that there were no survivors. But was wondering if anybody out there could add any further information. For example passenger or crew lists ? Thankyou in advance guy Also could someone tell me what type of duties a Leading Airman might have ? Does it mean he was already a pilot or member of an aircrew ? What types of plane could he expect to fly ?
