From Niece Anna-Marie Saunders:

Cecil Alexander Ebbs was the 3 boy in a very close family of 5 boys. Cecil was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Before joining the RAF he worked for the GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY on Amien Street in Dublin. He volunteered to join the RAF against his fathers wishes. He family told him not to sign up to be a rear gunner, but that is what he did. His brother William Ebbs also signed up an join the military. He made it home and settled in Dublin. Two other brothers George and Jack settled in England, the youngest , Albert, emigrated to Canada. Cecil's death was huge blow to his family and his mother never believed he had been killed. She spent years staring out he window waiting for him to come strolling down the street. Last year, the last brother ,my father Albert passed, at his funeral on November 11 we had a moment of silence for Cecil and had the poem "In Flanders Field " read in his honor.
