Pilot-officer Lloyd Henry Holliday, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. S. Holliday, of Sarner Road, Greenwich, was killed in an air crash near Kemp sey last Sunday, 8th March, 1942. He was 23 years of age. The funeral took place on Tuesday, when a service at St. Giles's Church of England, Greenwich, was conducted by Rev. R. C. Blumer, M.A., Rector, assisted by Rev. Fielding. A glorious array of beautiful flowers had been placed on and around the coffin in the church, a glowing tribute from relatives and friends.
