Sergeant Jack Marshall Cantor was an English airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born in 1920, in London, the son of Alfred (Abraham) and Bessie Cantor (née Griver).

Cantor, serving as an air gunner with 550 Squadron, died on 31 January 1944, when a German night-fighter heavily damaged his Avro Lancaster (serial DV305) while it was engaged in an operation against Berlin. The aircraft managed to land in England, having had its other air gunner, Sergeant John McKenzie, killed and one crewman taken prisoner.[1]

He is buried in Willesden Jewish Cemetery.


  1. Flying Officer Warren had, mistakenly, believed there had been an order to bale out during the night-fighter's attack and duly did so over Germany.
