The 102 Squadron Roll of Honour is housed within St Catherine's Church, Barmby Moor.

The Roll has been transcribed by our archivist, Clare Wilson.

For the Roll ordered by date of loss click here

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.
