Squadron Leader Henry Vernon L'Amy

  1. Hi Everyone,

    Whilst researching Rex Whistler's family tree, I came across one of his cousins who died in the war a month after him. I know he was born in Jersey.
    Can anyone expand on any more details of his time in the Air force and how he died etc?

    Many thanks

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for that and as I see a Sarah Ann Whistler, who would have been Rex's gran so that is a good confirmation I am going in the right direction.
