Summary

Flying Officer Harvey Sterling Glinz was born in Winnipeg, Canada in 1922, the son of Ernest Sterling Glinz and Pearl Emily Glinz; he had a sister. He joined the RCAF in 1941. He was a trained Air Gunner and was assigned to 61 Squadron, Bomber Command, as a Lancaster mid-upper gunner. After his first tour, he was assigned to the newly formed 617 Squadron. Since the special Lancasters assigned to 617 lacked a mid-upper turret, he served as front turret gunner. On May 16, 1943, his aircraft, AJ-E, during its penetration of Germany on Operation Chastise, collided with a high tension pylon near Haldern, Germany, and was lost with the entire crew.
