Father: Frank Waldron, mother Elsie, of Didcot, Berkshire.
d. 22 Apr 1943 in Catalina FP321
"Flt-Capt Carreras (q.v.) was instructing on a Catalina aircraft. Through no fault of his own the aircraft crashed on to the sea and the crew were thrown into the water. F/O Gibbs lost an arm, and but for Flt-Capt Carreras's efforts would have lost his life.
Flt-Capt Carreras also made the utmost efforts, but just failed, to save Flt-Engineer HFP Waldron from drowning, and helped other members of the crew to safety. He himself had experienced considerable shock and bruising."
His body was never found.
Commemorated at Runnymede:
