Horace John Northover took his brother's place in the Patrol when he joined the RAF, though technically too young to join and he does not appear in the Nominal Roll until he was old enough. Before this Jack, as he had always been known, was in the Home Guard but hadn’t heard anything about Auxiliary Units, despite his father and brother being involved. Tragically, his brother George William Northover was killed on 15th April 1943 when just 20 years old, when his plane was hit during a raid on Stuttgart, Germany, crashing in France. His father died on 3rd September 1943 aged 58 and his wife, Gladys Sarah Louisa died on the 13th June 1944, aged just 53. Both are buried in Stratton.
