Pilot to be remembered
A MEMORIAL service has been organised in Mount Molloy next month to honour the life of Pilot Officer Robert John Granger, who died in an air crash 78 years ago just outside of the small town.
Pilot Officer Granger was flying over Mt Molloy in November 1944 in his Royal Australian Air Force, Boomerang Serial A46-192 when it crash-landed and burned, taking the 23-year-old’s life.
The service, organised by Mareeba history enthusiast Michael Musumeci, will be conducted at the Mount Molloy Cenotaph Memorial on 5 November at 2pm and will include the unveiling of a dedicated bronzed plaque to honour the late pilot.
