P/O Keith R Gillman of No 32 Squadron RAF was the subject of a PICTURE POST magazine cover, published a week after his loss over the Channel on 25 August 1940. Photographed at RAF Hawkinge on 29 July, the 19-year-old pilot was postred in on 10 May, flying his first operational sortie on 7 June. With an Me 109 claimed on 19 July, he failed to return from combat off Dover, being their first airman lost during the summer and autumn.

This issue was published ten days after the death of King George VI. Having already gone to press at the time of the announcement of the king's death, the issue was recalled so that the first half of the magazine could be devoted to tributes to him.
