    Hi Alain
    Have you tried http://www.bombercrew.com/main.htm, a Canadian site which may provide an address from which you could get what you seek. There is a small 434 Sqn Gallery but it doesn't have a photo of your crew but the site moderator might know of one and there is also a small Forum.
    Regards
    Dick

    Default Halifax V LK-894

    In searching for information about this aircraft, I came across this web site & Alain's inquiry looking for a photo of P/O F. Leaver's crew. I am the niece of W/O2 J. Box from this crew, and have photographs. Since this is my first time on this site, I'm not sure how this works. However, my e-mail address is kanders@toronto.ca, if you want to contact me directly, and I can provide a photo asap.

    Just a minor point - 434 Squadron code was "WL".

    Hi, have you tried contacting Alan Soderstrom who runs the 434 Sqdn website at..

    http://rcaf434squadron.squarespace.com/

    Whilst he doesnt appear to have a full crew photo he may have some info.

    regards Rich
