The cousin of a World War II RAF pilot has been traced to south London after an appeal to find his relatives. German authorities had hoped the family of Sgt Frederick Wall would attend a memorial at the site in Germany where the 29-year-old was shot down in 1945.
His cousin, Alice Perkins, who is 96 and lives in Sutton, was found after the service but said she was “touched” to hear he had been honoured. Seven members of Air Force Volunteer Reserve Unit 514 Squadron were killed.
