    Hi Anne,

    I last contacted you regarding my uncle who flew with 178 sqn.......
    We were travelling through Lincolnshire a couple of weeks ago, and we passed through the village of Binbrook. My late Dad completed his Bomber Command service there with 101 Squadron. There is a beautifully kept memorial there to the personnel of 460 Sqn RAAF. Do you have any connections with that Squadron? If so, please let me have your e-mail address and I will send you a couple of pics that I took of the memorial.

    Regards

    Peter

    Anne,

    You do get around. As you can see I've actually registered and will start searches here soon. Thanks for the link.

    Regards

    Anne,

    I've just returned from Durban, South Africa where I spent about 10 days. I've also spent time at Durban High School, where my sister-in-law is head of department. She put me in touch with the school's archivist, who showed me Maj. Swales' miniature medals and presentation Lancaster.

    Do you have any photos of Major Swales?? Durban High School has a photocopy of his flight logbook, his mother's scrapbook (which has the telegrams dealing with Major Swales' death, DFC and VC awards). The archivist tells me that it was extremely rare for one to be gazetted with the DFC and awarded the VC the same day.
