An original group of World War Two medals to a Royal Air Force Aircraftman 1st Class who was killed in action on 1st November 1943. The medals were awarded to Arthur Wilson who came from Shildon in County Durham. The Air Crew Europe Star. The original memorial scroll named to Aircraftman 1st Class A. Wilson Royal Air Force with some writing, the medals included and the address for Mrs J Wilson on the reverse. A pre-war photo of Arthur Wilson in suit and tie marked AK1 A Wilson RAF KIA on the reverse in pencil. Arthur Wilson was born in 1921 and he was 22 when he died in 1943. His death was registered in Shrewsbury and he is buried at Shildon Cemetery and is commemorated on St John’s Church Shildon war memorial – photos of the memorial shown above. I’m not sure on the actual action that caused his death but this could be researched. It would have been one of his first sorties due to his rank. The medals come with their original ribbons and they have been mounted on a piece of card. Worthy of more research. Please let me know if you need any additional photos or details.
