I have just added a page on Cambridge airman Christopher George Barr Sharp, and also his brother Keith Huia Sharp, thanks to their niece Jenny Moon who let me know about them.
She gave me her uncle's name as being Christopher George Barr Sharp, but I note the cemetery where he's buried at Newstead, Hamilton, has him listed online as George Christopher Barr Sharp. Can anyone confirm which is correct?
He was apparently a Lancaster pilot. Does anyone have any details of his squadron/s, etc?

I hope to add more soon as Jenny, their niece, will be returning to NZ around Christmas time and will dig into her family history. But if anyone can add more details now I'd very much appreciate it. Cheers.
