Sergeant Eric Hopkins


Sergeant Eric Hopkins came from Newport, South Wales. He was just 20 years old when he lost his life over the skies of Godmanchester in April 1944. He had been in the RAF for 14 months. Prior to signing up he had attended Eveswell School , Hatherleigh Central School and Newport Art School and worked as a clerk for a Rogerstone company. He was the son of Mrs Hopkins and the late F. P. Hopkins of 25 Kenilworth Road, Newport.   


He also had a brother (Dennis also in the RAF) and a sister Maisie (ATS).  My search for his family goes on
