Anderson, Gordon see also Akaim, Victor E. (over) [clipping] [image] GORDON ANDERSON [clipping] 29 October 1941 Former Kitchener Flier Badly Hurt Big Bomber Crashes On Return to England PRESTON, Oct. 29 – Sgt.-Pilot Gordon D. Anderson of Galt, formerly of Kitchener, was seriously injured in a flying accident in England, according to a cable received by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Anderson, Church street, Preston, formerly of Kitchener. In the same accident, Sgt.-Observer L. Rowe of Guelph, a flying companion and chum of Anderson’s, was instantly killed. The plane, a Wellington bomber, was returning from a raid over Europe. Bad weather was blamed for the crash. Mr. Anderson immediately cabled a brother in England when he was advised of the crash. Today he received a reply stating that Gordon is doing fine. Sgt.-Pilot Anderson enlisted in Sept. 1940 and received his wings in April at Mossbank Sask. In letters to his parents, he told of taking part in many raids over enemy territory. He was born in Guelph and attended the Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate. He worked of the Bell Telephone in Kitchener and later in Galt. He is a member of the First United church, Waterloo. His parents recently moved to Preston from Kitchener. [clipping] 20 November 1941 INJURED IN CRASH Sgt.-Pilot Anderson was injured in the crash that claimed the life of his flying pal, Sgt.-Observer L. Rowe of Guelph. The plane was returning from a raid over enemy territory. Anderson’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Anderson of Preston, were advised that he was seriously injured and burned on Oct. 29. He died at Princess Mary R.A.F. Hospital. Sgt.-Pilot Anderson’s picture appeared in The Record on Oct. 6. It showed him, along with his deceased friend, a Waterloo soldier, Pte. “Kuney” Kueneman and an unidentified sailor, feeding pigeons in Trafalgar Square. Sgt.-Pilot Anderson was also a graduate of the K-W Collegiate. He was a member of First United church, Waterloo. The former Kitchener man was interested in flying even before joining the air force and had 50 hours of flying to his credit as a member of the K-W Flying Club.
