    Hi Malcolm!

    Ex-576 Sqn Air Bomber 157179 Flt Lt John Shorthouse of 61 Sqn was also lost on RF407 (as indicated on his gravestone). He flew with the Till crew on 576 from Sep 44 to May 45.

    Can you reconcile the 61 Sqn crew list in light of this information?

    Thanks!!

    Hi Matt

    I'm not sure what there is to reconcile, Shorthouse is already in the list I submitted?
