    Default 630 Squadron

    A longshot question for 630 Sqn aficionados ... or anyone who can help please.
    On the night of 28-29 July 44 a 630 Lanc piloted by New Zealander F/L GR (George) Joblin was shot over Stuttgart. The sole survivor was the bomb aimer, British F/O WCJ Beeson according to Bomber Command Losses. Beeson became a POW, later safe in UK. Iíd like to have this manís given names and find him (possibly still alive) or family. Best thanks - Max Lambert, Wellington, NZ.
