Sergeant Hyman Chaim Mordecai Kahler was an English airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born in 1923, at Whitechapel, the son of Morris (Movsha) and Rachel Kahler (née Levene).

Kahler, serving as a flight engineer in 75 Squadron, died on 19 April 1944, when his Short Stirling (EH955) was shot down by a German night-fighter over Denmark, crashing near Jenning. The aircraft had been engaged on a minelaying operation. Three of the seven-man crew, Sergeants Hill, Irwin (both of the Royal New Zealand Air Force), and McFarland, survived and were taken prisoner.[1][2]

He and his three crewmates are buried in Gram Churchyard.
