    Col,
    I had GOULDSTONE in my files (unaccounted for) as his name was not listed by Chorley in his Vol. 8 page 177 on Lancaster W4103.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Henk,

    Gouldstone's presence aboard Lancaster I W4103 on 14-4-1944 is confirmed in Laidler's A705 (p.18 of 34) at the NAA. Bill Chorley has him listed in BCL9/328 as: 14-4-44 5 LFS.

    Col.
