Narrative and Notes

Charles Frederick BURROWS was a joiner by trade. His son worked in the aero-industry, probably at the Gloster Aircraft Company, and it is possible that as a joiner Charles also worked for the company. The company had been making aircraft and spares since the First World War, including the Gloster Gladiator biplane during the interwar years.

Based in Cheltenham, the Gloster Aircraft Company manufactured most of the WW2 production of the Hawker Hurricanes and Hawker Typhoons, while also working on the E.28/39 experimental aircraft and the Meteor, the RAF's first jet-powered fighter and the only Allied jet fighter put into service during the Second World War.

During 1939, the company constructed 1,000 Hawker Hurricanes within the first 12 months of the conflict; Gloster delivered the last of its 2,750 Hurricanes in 1942. After ending production of the Hurricane, it was decided to manufacture the newer Hawker Typhoon in its place. Gloster proceeded to construct 3,300 in total, almost the entirety of the type.

Although he would have been 72, Charles might have been working there until he died in 1942.
