A Dash of Courage
Sgt Charles Naylor
|Sgt Charles Naylor lived at 100 Danethorpe Vale,
Sherwood, Nottingham NG5, with his wife Sylvia Alice
Marguerite Naylor. His parents Mr and Mrs F Naylor also
lived in Nottingham.
Sgt Naylor had joined CEGH's crew at a late stage at the Operational Training Unit at Andover as a result of the original wireless-operator/air gunner on the crew being considered unsuitable. Naylor had already gained a significant amount of operational experience and was aparently a tall man who squeezed into the Blenheim turret with difficulty!
Charles Naylor is commemorated on the War Memorial in Cinderhill Christ Church, Nottingham, by a wooden plaque, a memorial book, and an altar rail. His name is also recorded on the Runnymede Memorial.
THIS ALTAR RAIL WAS PLACED HERE
