OTHER VICTORIA CROSS HOLDERS
Apart from the 25 persons listed above there were other servicemen who were awarded a VC for their bravery in the air who do not appear on the camp. It could be that there were simply not enough roads to commemorate everyone. Some served in the Royal Navy Fleet Air and would possibly have been remembered on Naval bases - if anyone can comment on this please get in touch. I do not have a military backround so do not know the protocol surrounding such traditions. Below are seven VC holders not on the above lists.
Lieutenant Eugene Esmonde - Fleet Air Arm - killed 12/2/1942. Aged 23 years.
Pilot Officer Andrew Charles Mynarski - Royal Canadian Air Force - killed 12/6/1944. Aged 27 years. (Nb - records show that his VC was not awarded until Oct 1946 which possibly explains his absence from any maps for WW11).
