Name: Gerald St George Francis Drake
Died on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Additional Information: Gerald Drake, aged 60, was killed when seven fighter bombers swept into St Leonards strafing with machine gun fire and dropping HE bombs on Warrior Square, West Hill, St Leonards, Quarry Hill and De Cham Road. 23 people were killed in the attack, with 43 other wounded, 21 seriously.
Gerald was the son of Major Francis & Mrs Drake. He lived at 136 Marina, St Leonards
I was unable to locate Gerald’s grave marker in the main area of WW2 war graves, so he is likely buried else where on site. I will look to find it when I revisit Hastings Cemetery.
