Nicknamed "Whitie", Robert Kincaid was a Rigger with the 419 squadron ground crew, seen at left in an enlargement
taken from a group photo while at Trenton.
Below while overseas with 419 Squadron looking after VR-D in this case KB738, the ground crew along with members
of the aircrew are photographed in front of VR-D "Dorothy.
What makes finding the name of this LAC is that he was one of the members of my father's ground crew. LAC Kincaid is
the far left of the bottom row, my father is the Sergeant fourth from left bottom row. So far he is the only member of Sgt. Logan's
crew where the family has contacted me.
The photo hung in both homes, the Kincaid and my own for many years. Neither photos had names on the back. The Kincaid family contacted
me and another small piece of the puzzle came together.
Another photo of KB738 VR-D "Dorothy" with the ground crew with Kincaid left most bottom row.
