John Burrows



Pay Respect

Received from RHQ:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with sadness that we report the passing of ex GPR Sergeant John G Burrows on 19 Oct 17 in Darlington. John qualified as a Glider Pilot in 1943. He was a member of E Sqn GPR when he flew as Co-Pilot to SSgt Kitchener into Normandy on D-Day. He was co-pilot to SSgt Kitchener again when he flew into Arnhem with F Sqn GPR. He returned through Nijmegen later that month. John remained in service until 1946 having completed his final deployment with D Sqn GPR in Palestine. It is regretted that there are no further details.
