But wait…

Found on eBay!

Rare opportunity to obtain an original WW2 Royal Canadian Air Force Boxed Casualty Medal and Memorial Cross to R-108924 Victor George De Havilland who was first cousin to Geoffrey De Havilland the famous test pilot. Victor De Haviland died on active service as a Sgt Pilot in 1942 and is buried in Toronto, Canada. The group consists of his Canadian Volunteer medal in its original box and condolence slip, Silver Memorial Cross engraved with name and number complete with box and card, and lastly an original framed Roll of Honour memorial scroll issued to his family from the City of Toronto. Rare to find such a grouping to a family member of one of the most famous families in aviation history. There is also included some family tree research from the internet to show the relationship.

    • They were asking for $895.
      I believe someone wants to make money about the death of a distant cousin of the famous Geoffrey de Havilland.

    • I much prefer what you did with Mervyn Jack Mills. I believe he never stood a chance against well seasoned German pilots.
