The Airmen's Stories - Sgt. P D Lloyd


Philip David Lloyd was born in the second quarter of 1917 in Loughton, Essex, the son of James and Elizabeth Kate Lloyd.

He worked for Chigwell Urban District Council.

Lloyd joined the RAFVR in September 1938 and did his weekend flying at 21 E&RFTS, Stapleford Tawney. Called to full-time service at the outbreak of war, Lloyd completed his training and joined 41 Squadron at Catterick in early September 1940.

He had married Phyllis Irma Glasscock in Epping in July.




Lloyd was shot down and killed in a surprise attack by Hauptmann Fozo of 4/JG51 on 15th October. His Spitfire, X4178, crashed into the Channel. His body was washed ashore near Kings Hall, Herne Bay twelve days later.
