An Angus airman who was killed in action during the Second World War is being honoured by a national voluntary organisation.
Sergeant Ronald Gove, from Hillside, served as a navigator in IX (Bomber) Squadron of the RAF until his Vickers Wellington bomber was shot down over Italy in 1941.
His daughter, Wendy Stebbings, never met her father but received a Bomber Command Clasp in 2011 after appealing for information about him.
Aircrew Remembered, a commemorative website set up to keep the memory alive of those who lost their lives in the skies during World War Two, is assembling an online tribute.
Mr Gove was 25 when the Wellington IC R1279 went down, with all six crewmen killed.
Senior research editor Kate Tame said she became involved when researching the war service of her own father, Fl/Sgt Walter Stanley Kitson, who had flown with Sgt Gove before his death.
She said: “A page of remembrance has been written for all the crew of the Wellington aircraft that lost their lives on an operation to Genoa on the night of September 28/29 1941.
“Sgt Ronald Gordon Gove had been with No 9 Squadron since May 16 1941 and had completed 23 operational flights before he was killed in action.
“The pilot came from Montreal, Canada, and was on his first operational flight of his 2nd tour of duty with No 9 Squadron, so a very experienced pilot.”
She added: “If any family members would like to add any information or photographs to the page of remembrance, please get in touch.
“We have over 400,000 individual records at various levels of detail, but, of course, there are millions more still to be recorded.
Sgt Gove was born on the August 29 1916 in Montrose and is remembered on the War Memorial at Montrose Academy, Hillside War Memorial and the Dundee Roll of Honour.
Mrs Stebbings, of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, said she was raised by her grandmother and knew relatively little about Mr Gove until she contacted relatives of his sister in Hillside.
She said she was “thrilled” to receive the clasp.
In February 1939, the squadron moved to Honington and received Wellingtons, and it was with these that it was involved in anti-shipping sorties in the early stages of the war.
