1229466 Flight Sergt. /Wireless Operator Gwilym James Whitcombe of the RAF VR. Son of James and Laura Whitcombe. Born in 1921. Died 29 April 1945 aged 24. Killed in a flying accident during a severe snowstorm. Buried in Culmstock Cemetery.
A friend of Gwilym's, Clifford Gill, who also served in the RAF, spotted several errors in the original plaque. It took him months, if not years, to get the monument corrected and he ended up having to pay for it himself. It's worth getting out a magnifying glass to see just how incorrect the original entry was!
