Hello, My name is Veerle and I am a student from Belgium.

I need some information about Ronald Hawkins. Any information is welcome! You guys could help me a lot! It's for school, for history, and I could win a trip to Londen! I have to make a facebook page, and on that page I need to write a lot of info of that person.

Greetings, Veerle x

Uh... Ronald Hawkins the concert pianist?

This is a site about World War Two, is this the best place to post this?

But to answer this question:

no, it's not the pianist ;)

So before further members here have to guess about one Ronald Hawkins why don't you provide some additional info that could be helpful. There must be something...

Don't waste your time. The OP had his answer here http://www.ww2talk.com/forum/searching-someone-military-genealogy/31895-ronald-hawkins-3-sqdn-royal-air-force-gent-city-cemetery.html , nearly a month ago. And he acknowledged the detailed info in the posts, so I don't know why he's posting cryptic questions here, and repeating them on that site around the same time he posted on WWIIIC http://www.ww2talk.com/forum/searching-someone-military-genealogy/31895-ronald-hawkins-3-sqdn-royal-air-force-gent-city-cemetery-2.html when he already knows a lot more from the acknowledged answers to his first post. Seems like he expects other people to waste their time running around spoon feeding him when he's too lazy to do his own research and or too stupid to recall the excellent info given in response to his first post on that site. Either way, don't waste your time.

And more so as veerle refers at #10 on the linked site to his Facebook page on Hawkins, which has plenty of information on the courageous and resourceful Hawkins: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ronald-Hawkins-live-and-remember/144901438898137 That Facebook link was nearly a month ago, yet in his OP here veerle says he needs help to make a Facebook page on Hawkins despite it being up and running weeks ago.

We're being used.

If he wants to win a trip to London, he can earn it by his own work.

My name is Veerle Bullaert and I am a student from Benedictuspoort in Begium.

My class participate in a contest: Live and Remember. My teacher of history uses this as an assignment. Everybody has to choose one person who died during the second world war. Then you have to make a facebook page about that person, so that everybody can remember that person. It's a sort of memorial.

I have chosen Ronald Hawkins; a Squadron Leader. I have already a lot of information but I could use some more information. I could use some photographes about memorial places of him or pictures of him.

Maybe this can help you a bit:

Initials: R
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Squadron Leader
Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force
Unit Text: 3 Sqdn.
Age: 27
Date of Death: 05/10/1943
Service No: 70802
Awards: M C, A F C
Additional information: Son of William James Hawkins and Flora Meachen Hawkins, of Ipswich, Suffolk.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: 18. 7. 5.

I hope you can help me!

kind regards,

veerle's posts are a waste of bandwidth by a lazy student who can't be bothered doing his own research.

Which is why this thread is closed.
