102 (Ceylon) Squadron Association

We would like to make you aware of the research carried out by Clare Wilson into the War Graves within St Catherine's Churchyard at Barmby Moor.

Clare is a genealogist and is the Association’s Archivist. She has researched the individuals buried there, many of whom were associated with 102 Squadron

She says "they are a lot more than just names and Dates etched in stone... these men served, fought and died for their country"

Clare has kindly given permission for us to provide links from our website to her research here. For an article about her work published in the Pocklington Post click here.

On the 10th of August 2022 our Chairman, Harry Hughes DFC DFM celebrated his 100th birthday with his family and carers at his home in Cornwall.

Harry has been our Chairman since 2016 and, although he has mobility and speech problems, still has a great interest in our Association’s activities.

Some years ago Harry recorded an interview with the International Bomber Command Digital Archive which can be heard using the link:


Definitely worth a listen as he talks about his service and time in the RAF!

As an Association we wish him a very happy birthday.
