News of the death of Robert Kitchen Griffith, age 31, during an operational flight over enemy territory, was received here last Saturday with deep regret by a host of his friends and acquaintances. The news came just a week after he was reported "missing".

Sergeant Air Gunner Griffith was born here and attended the Beach Public School and the Grimsby High School. Prior to enlisting in January of last year he was on the staff of E.D.Smith and Sons, Winona. On his enlistment he was posted from Toronto Manning Pool to Picton, Guelph and finally, to Jarvis Bombing and Gunnery School, from which he graduated at the end of January of this year.

Just after receiving his wings, and before leaving for his post overseas, the flier married Miss Miriam Kelterborn, Main street east. He is the son of the late Harry Griffith and Mrs. Griffith. A brother, Jack, who has been in Alaska recently, left for Grimsby immediately on receipt of news that his brother was missing, and intends to return there shortly.
