Additional information:
Son of Trevor and Katie Aubrey; husband of Gladys Carson Aubrey, of Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Trevor was born 22 november 1917, Morriston, Swansea. He died during the battle of Voorheide, Belgium and was initially buried there.

“‘My father, who was Trevor’s brother Dave, and in the RAF, said that the last time he saw his brother was on the railway station platform in Swansea, on a day that one brother was leaving home after leave, and the other was arriving home on leave.

Trevor’s teenage sister, Edna, remembered being at the cinema at the time of one of the bombing raids on Swansea, and her two brothers, Trevor and Dave went to find her, and they all ran back home during the bombing.”‘
