d. 4.2.1940 (WW2, age 23) in Caithness 
 

RAF pilot.  Killed while serving in Caithness during World War 2.  While flying in tight formation, another plane collided with his.  Robert jumped free but his parachute failed to open.

Sergeant Pilot Robert Marwick Mainland was buried with full military honours on 30 April 1940 in Grave 411, Section O, in Wick Cemetery, Caithness.

After successful lobbying of the Orkney Islands Council by Norman Logie, Robert's name was added to the Rousay War Memorial in the Spring of 2017, and a Dedication Service there was attended by his cousin Cynthia Brown of Stromness, his nephew Mark Williams and wife Christine of Manchester, plus representatives of the Kirkwall Branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland. There are photographs of the Dedication Service at the Rousay War Memorial here.
