Donald

Wanklyn Kingsbury

1924

Kington, Herefordshire

7th November 1944

Donald was killed in action in the Clearing of the Scheldt Estuary and the Liberation of Walcheren, Holland in late October and November 1944. It seems likely that Donald might have been with 79 Assault Squadron that landed in amphibious tanks required for the flooded areas to force the Nazi forces out. He was initially buried at Domburg, Holland near where the three amphibious landings took place - many who took part had seen action on the Normandy landings
