    Default Looking for pictures of two airmen 156 Sqn

    Hello all,
    Once again I am trying to find two pictures of airmen KIA along with the rest of their crew with 156 Squadron.
    The first is,
    Flying Officer Victor Waterhouse (air gunner) service No. 149100

    The second is,
    Flight Sgt. Ronald Underwood (air gunner) service No. 1432425

    Both of these aimen were lost onboard Lancaster 111 ND384 GT-D
    of 156 Sqn (Pathfinders) on the 2/1/1944

    I have photos of the rest of the crew but would love to be able to locate these two men.

    If anyone can help I would be most greatful.
    Many thanks for your time
    Wayne

    Hello Wayne,

    My fathers uncle (my great uncle) was onboard the Lancaster ND384. Flying Officer Alan Richard Bolsover. Personally I only ever remember seeing one photo of him which my grandmother (his sister) held in a very proud place. My father visited with my family and I recently, and brought a letter which his uncle wrote to my grandmother during a period of RAF training/exams in Aberystwyth Sept 1940. A great letter which I was privileged to read has subsequently set me on a course to try and find out more about the man.

    Having read a couple of threads about who shot them down and where, I understand there has been quite some confusion in this regard. Noting that this thread is now over 8 years old, I was hoping that, first and foremost, you're still contactable, and secondly, that you may be willing to share any information, photos contacts that you have obtained.

    The photo I refer to above is a pretty standard service photo, but I was also able to find one of him with six other service men. Three of these were part of his crew. If you have any other photos I would be very interested to see them.

    Kind regards,

    Russ

    Dave,

    I don't know if your eyes are alien, but they're definitely sharp!

    Thanks very much for the quick response.

    Russ
