    Default Info about crashed flight LL972 August 1944

    My uncle Thomas George Nottingham 1576650 of 630 Squadron was killed when flight LL972 crashed on or about 16/8/44 on Operation Stettin. Looking for further information about the operation, why the plane crashed and any info on my Uncle.

    Picking up on AlanW post, if he was with 630 Squadron in mid 1944, he may well be in the photograph on the following site:
