Sgt. Millar G. G.

Sergeant Millar’s name appears in Clarence Simonsen’s research about Hurricane 5389 which is being restored right now.

1 November 1942 Sgt. Millar G. G. 9:20 to 10:20 hrs Sector Reconnaissance

I got curious and wanted to see if he had survived the war.

This is where I found his name on a list of names…

Bill Eull has a Website especially dedicated to RCAF 111 Squadron. He gave me permission to use whatever information I need to pay homage to the Fallen.

Flight Lieutenant (Pilot) George Glenn Millar

(J20388) He arrived at 111 Squadron as a replacement pilot on May 16, 1943 from 133 (f) Squadron at Boundary Bay. He was at 111 Squadron to get checked out in a new, for him, fighter type.  He had been flying Hurricanes with 133 squadron.  But he did not remain long with 111 Squadron.  He soloed in the Kittyhawk in late May and by the middle of August, 1943, he was flying with 14 Squadron at Umnak Island.  He spent a one week rotation at the forward assembly airport on Amchitka Island in August, 1943.  He remained with 14 Squadron and went overseas with them.  14 Squadron was renumbered to 442 Sqn. On September 28, 1944, while on a front line patrol in his Spitfire (PL490), he ran out of gas and was last seen over Nijmegen, Holland. He is buried it the War Cemetery at Uden, North Brabant, Holland. He was from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Remembering Flight Lieutenant George Glenn Millar.
