Sergeant Arthur Adolphus Walrond was a Barbadian airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born the son of Richard Humphrey and Sarah Walrond, of St. Michael, Barbados, and was the husband of Ena Louise.

Walrond, serving as a wireless operator and air gunner in 15 Squadron, died on 29 June 1943, when his Short Stirling (BK694) was shot down over Belgium by a German night-fighter while engaged on an operation against Cologne. One of the seven-man crew, Flight Sergeant J.D. Duckett, RNZAF, survived the crash at Limburg and was taken prisoner. Those killed were initially buried at St-Truiden.[1]

He is buried in Heverlee War Cemetery.
