James Brooks Hornby

This story and photo is shared by the Trust courtesy of  Judith Shepherd, Niece of James Hornby

James was the only son of Louisa and James Hornby and the family were from Kingston upon Hull. James had an older sister called Ellen. He attended Malet Lambert
School in Hull and worked as a clerk at Hull Royal Infirmary before joining the RAF.

James did his training in Canada before returning to England on the Queen Mary.

His widowed mother and sister were always very proud of him but felt his loss profoundly throughout their lives. They remembered Jim and the crew of LK385 always.
