Noel Wilkin

by Don Wilkin

During the Second World War my father's youngest brother Noel was trained to fly and flew aircraft during the North Africa campaign. He was later asigned to a R.A.F. bomber with an all Australian crew. They were to fly supplies in the Burma Airlift.

Their aircraft was shot down on it's maiden flight with no survivors.

I believe that there is a memorial somewhere in Australia with his name on it. I am South African and all my father's family grew up in Johannesburg in South Africa. I am definately a little vague on details.
