Dear forum members,

I am looking for information on Sergeant George Samuel Watson. He was part of the crew of Wellington Z1209 of 142 Squadron, Royal Air Force. This aircraft was lost over the sea on 31 May 1942, while on operations to Köln.

George Samuel Watson Was the son of George and Hannah H. N. Watson, of Warrenpoint, Co Down, Northern Ireland. Are there people or societies in Warrenpoint who could provide me more information on this man?

I am looking forward to your replies. Thanks in advance.

Pieter

I tried posting a few links for you but i cocked it up :-( If you go to search and type in the name Watson then you will see a few threads about the family. I and indeed many members of the forum remember Mrs Watson very well.

I wonder is that the same George Watson in this school photo from 1927?

George Watson was 23 years old when he was killed in 1942, so in 1927 he must have been around 8 years old. So could be.

Thanks the gap as well for your reply. I will have a look.

I remember Mrs. Watson very well.
She was always in her garden at the
front of her house, on Clonallon Rd.
She would always say hello whenever
you walked by.
I didn't know she had any children
until now.
How sad to lose her son at such a
young age.

X-paddy, Mrs. Hannah Watson also lost her husband in the First World War, it was very near the cessation of hostilities when Mr. Watson was killed. Her son was very very young when his father lost his life.

Dukestreet - I knew she was a widow,
but didn't know how her husband had
died.
