    Default R.M. Dickie (RCAF ) Whitley crash : AD 712 30.08.1944 Scotland

    Hello to all on the Forum. I am in the process of researching a RAF Lancaster crew killed in Colchester Essex and have recently had letters published in Canadian newspapers in my search for the three Canadian crew members.

    I was contacted yesterday by a lady in Canada who enquired about her cousin who died in a totally unconnected air crash in August 1944. I posted her letter on the website that I frequent which is WW2talk.com and received quite a lot of information on this Whitley crash. Link here:

    If any members have anything they could add or if they could send me a picture of his grave (for some reason I can't register on the Scottish War Graves Project site) I would be grateful.

    Mrs. Bradley is not a PC /Internet user so all of what I can collate will be sent to her through the post.

    Many thanks.

    P.S. Great site here and will visit more often.

    You could write or email the Canadian archives and possibly get his service record and a copy of a photo of him too if they hold one. Good luck.
