Moberly Way, CR8

Place Name

One of seven streets named after “Kenley’s Few” RAF officers stationed at the nearby airfield who lost their lives during the Battle of Britain during World War Two. Named after George Edward Moberly (December 23, 1914 – August 26, 1940), born in Bombay, India, where his father had been an engineer in the Indian Army. He received his commission in the Auxiliary Air Force in July 1938. He was shot down over the English Channel, off the coast of Dover, Kent. The street sign – like all seven – has the rare distinction of a brief history of his life.
