    Hello from France,

    I’m interested in this pilot who is buried in my area in northern France, in Calais Canadian War Cemetery. He was based at B.53 Merville airfield, of which I’m the unofficial historian.

    Any information about this pilot from Jamaica welcome.

  2. Serena Nurse adds:

    Ulick Williams was a cousin of mine – he was always known by his middle name, not his first name. His father, Richard, was my great uncle, who later became my step-grandfather.
    I knew his father well, and his brother Roland. All are now deceased, but I can probably tell you some details about his family background if you are still interested.
    With kind regards,
    Serena Nurse (nee Williams)

    I’m interested in any details you may have about him and his career in the R.A.F.
