    Hello
    First time on this forum, but a stroll through the Internet led me here!
    My Dad's Uncle David Lyall is listed as killed at Goshawk on 12/8/42- does anyone have any information to allow me to discover more? The sites I've found so far have not really helped.

    Much obliged to all

    Magnus
