    This is my grandfather who I never knew.
    However Kitty his wife was a great old grandma. They had two daughters. Paula & Sylvia. Paula my mother also served in the Canadian Air force during the war.

    I’m frustrated that the site which lists his name but it is incorrectly given as below.

    JONES, Edward William (52) Lt. 159282, Royal Engineers. Of 56 Station Road, Shirehampton, Bristol. Son of Thomas and Mary Ann Jones. Husband of Kitty Jones of Toronto, Canada. Body removed to temporary mortuary at St.Peters.

    Any comments regarding my grandfather are welcome

    It is confusing that some places he is identified as Lieutenant and other places listed as Major.
