World War 11 Casualties


If you could spare a few dollars to help with the running costs of this website would be very much appreciated.

Thank you from Gravesites of Tasmania.

Payne Kenrick




Born South Forest, Tasmania to Kenrick Taylor and Mary Winifred Payne, Flt Sgt Payne was a carpenter when he enlisted in the RAAF. 

He was attached to 196 Squadron and was Wireless/Air Gunner on Stirling LJ842 which took off from RAF Keevil Trowbridge Wiltshire on the 4th April 1944 to carry out a Horsa glider towing exercise. 

The aircraft crashed at dusk near Ramsey and all the crew was killed. It is unclear what occurred. 

Flt Sgt Kenrick Payne was buried at the Bath R.A.F. Cemetery Somerset England.
