    This Crew was lost without trace whilst taking part on a raid to Hanover, Germany. On the night of 22 September 1943, LK635 NA-H of 428 Squadron RCAF took off from Middleton St George at 18:28 never to return. They have no known grave and are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.

    For 70 years the families have mourned the loss of these brave men:

    Heroes all indeed Nick. Look at the age of three of the crew, just 19. Joined up as boys, died as men.

    We do remember them.

    Thanks Ian

    Yes they were boys. It is very scary to think of many of these youg boys doing what they did each and every night. Especially when my own son, who is now 25, can sleep safe because of them.
