Headstone J19592 Pilot Officer (P/O) Devereaux, Frank Gerrard, Pilot, Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), Pilot of Halifax III aircraft LV 831 427 Squadron
died 28 May 1944 and buried in Baisy-Thy Cemetery in Belgium with two crew members; Sergeant Edwards RCAF and Pilot Officer Kirkton Royal Air Force (RAF) 427 Sqn. A very tight bond exists between aircrew members, they depend on and take care of their buddies, probably more so than close family members might do. It is fitting that there are flowers on his grave. Probably a Belgium person or family have adopted Frank's grave (which is a common practice in Europe for War graves) and take spotless care of their adopted grave of a Canadian Airman who helped liberate their family from the horrors of Nazi German rule under Adolph Hitler. Grave No 8.
