Flying Officer Alfred Robbins DFC 77 squadron, Halifax LL235 lost april 23rd 1944
I am helping a friend of mine whose brother F/O Robbins was lost on operations off the coast of Denmark. Anyone with information letters or photographs pertaining to his RAF career would be most welcome. Yesterday I attended the unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in London and was deeply moved by the ceremony and the wonderfull sight of so many veterans from around the globe. The only regret is that it has taken so long and so many have through the passing of time been denied their rightfull acknowledgment.
I expect one of the other forum members will have some information about your loss.
However, are you aware that there is still an active 77 Squadron Association.
If you look at www.flensted.eu.com you can see the details of this loss, also there is photo of the crew. This is an excellent site, "Airwar over Denmark".
Thanks for the responses the Danish Site is most useful although F/O Robbins doesn't appear in any of the photographs, I understand he was a late substitute for the regular navigator...fortunes of war. Thanks again,
