    Default P/O Allen,P.H,Sgt Raynes,Sgt McGhee,F/O Nelson,Sgt King,Sgt Montague,Sgt Drake 1944

    Does anyone recognize this crew or any of its members?They were a Lancaster crew posted to 166 squadron in July 1944 but crashed on landing at base on return from a raid on Kiel on 23.7.44.They were subsequently returned (I believe ) to Conversion Unit and probably reposted to another squadron. I would like to know what squadron they went to after 166.

    The full details are;
    P/O Allen,P.H Pilot
    Sgt Raynes,G.N Flight Engineer
    Sgt McGhee,G.B Air Bomber RCAF R.125935
    F/O Nelson,J.B Navigator RCAF J.28344
    Sgt King, G Wireless Operator
    Sgt Montague V. Mid Upper Gunner
    Sgt Duke, R.C Rear Gunner

    any help appreciated.

    Barnsley,
    Lancaster ND614 166 Sqn - Chorley Vol.5 page 346. Are you sure you trades of the crew are correct ?
    Regards,

    Hello Henk, thank you for your post
    yes the trades of the crew are correct according to the crew list in the ORB for the op.I cant check them against anything else as it was their first operation and they are missed off the monthly posting in sheet of the ORB.
    I am trying to find out where they went after 166 squadron.
    cheers,B
