I'm trying to find out information about my grandfather Sydney Thomas Tipper. I know he was born in England in October 1900. He was a pilot in the RFC in WW1 and in WW2 he was night time bomber commander stationed at Squires Gate. Not exactly sure of the dates he was there but we think it was around 1948-1951. he was married to Dorothy Mathews and he died in 1969.
