    You will find details of all Bomber Command losses in the books of that name by Bill Chorley. You can purchase them or perhaps obtain through inter library loan etc.

    is there a link between the various men and aircraft that your threads seek information about? if there is a common theme, link etc people might be able to help you better.

    are they connected tot eh www.backtonormandy.org website?

    Hi Dennis
    I have used the Bill Chorley books in the past but unfortunately I am recovering from a fall (rib damage) and at present not up to going to Cardiff Library, where the books are, hence posting here asking for help.
