James Reginald Greathead
     James Reginald Greathead was born in 1921 in British Guiana.2 He was the son of James Thompson Greathead and Lillian Gertrude Gainfort. James and Lilian travelled with their sons John and James who were listed as Reginald and John aboard the ship Cottica. They arrived on 4 June 1932 at Plymouth from Demerara, British Guiana. James was described as an accountant and he gave their address in UK as Lillycoats Hotel, Millbay, Plymouth.3 James was educated at Queen's College, Georgetown.4 He was Aircraftman 2nd Class 1397957, Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve arriving in August 1941 in August 1941.1,5 He died on 4 February 1942 in Royal Air Force Station Hospital, Fylde, Lancashire, England, in a motorbike accident.1,6,5,7 The following article appeared in the West Lancashire Evening Gazette:
AC2 Jas Reginald Greathead (22) youngest son of Mr and Mrs J T Greathead of Duke Street, Kingston died at a Royal Air Force Station Hospital, N Lancs, England. He left British Guiana in August last. A brother Mr John Ronald Greathead is also in the RAF and is training to be a pilot.

In one of the wards in a Services Hospital the other day young man died. He had crossed the Atlantic, come some 4,000 miles from Georgetown, British Guiana, to serve Britain in her darkest hour.

He was only an AC2. Yet he went to his grave in a north-west village church yard to the tattoo of muffled drums, to the lament of the Last Post to the bark of rifles firing over his grave. They could have given no greater honour to an air marshal.

I watched the guard of honour passing the village green. An official led the slow ceremonial march. Beneath the flag. Flanking the open hearse were 16 aircraftmen. The folds of the Union Jack enclosed the coffin and on the flag a cross of flowers. A band was in the procession, playing the sad, plaintive music of the Dead March. Two men walked behind the hearse. One was the aircraftsman's brother who had crossed the seas with him and had been called from a station in the South to the funeral. The other was a pilot officer deputed to escort him.

Blinds masked the windows of the houses near the village green. Women came out of the doors and stood in silence as the cortege passed. No greater homage. He rests, now, this AC2 from Georgetown, British Guana, in the soil of the land which he came to defend.

A photographer was summoned to record the scene; I was asked to write a few lines about it. Now, at the request of the Commanding Officer of the RAF Station, the photographs and thee few paragraphs will be sent to the family in Georgetown. They will know then we gave him, however humble his rank, l that we could give him in homage and respect in a strange land.

....And every day since the women of the village have gone to the churchyard and left flowers on his grave.8


James was buried in St Michael, Weeton, Lancashire, England, in Grave 94.1
