    Hi Rene,

    I would like to point out that 'The Sky is our Ocean' is a great book but with some mistakes...
    The pictures of wreckage is correct but the man on the lift is not Sgt Jindra as it is officer observer...
    There are few photos - including the same alread mentioned - in "Na nebi hrdeho Albionu" by J. Rajlich and "Kridla miri nad Nemecko" by M. Pajer - icluding the portraits of the whole crew. But as I have no copyright for re-publishing them I am not able to provide them.
