George Cecil Kilby

George Kilby was my uncle, married to my father's sister Elizabeth Kilby Nee Ward. George lived at 64 Crawley Green Road until his death on February 17, 1971. George told me that he was temporarily taken out of active serice in France to instruct at Upavon. A pupil crashed an aircraft and was killed, George survived. He said that his TDY as an instructor was more dangerous that active flying at the front. They had a son John, an only child, who was killed in the August 30 1940 raid on Vauxhall Motors. George got John an apprenticeship at Vauxhall in the hope that is would keep him out of the war. George had seen too much of the horror in WW1. George is burried in the Crawley Green Road Cemetery along with his wife Elizabeth and son John.
