Philip David Lloyd

Left Loughton School to work in Chigwell Urban District Council and learnt to fly at Stapleford Aerodrome and joined the RAF Volunteer Reserve. On 24th August 1940 Sergeant Pilot Lloyd married his sweetheart but after only two weeks he took up his posting with 41 Squadron at Catterick.

Over the next few weeks the squadron took heavy losses and on 15th October, set off on a routine coastal patrol from which he never returned. 12 Days later his body was recovered on the beach at Herne Bay.

Philip Lloyd was then returned to the little church at High Beach where he had married just two months before.
