Hi all,

The above airmen was shot down on the night of the 20th/21st of February 1945 whilst flying as a mid-under Gunner with 578 Squadron, in Halifax NA618 (Chorley '45, p84 refers) and was seriously injured. He had previously flown a tour with 100, over the winter of 1943-44, completing 10 trips to Berlin over that winter. He died earlier this year in Staffordshire.

Can anyone add any details of W/O Mason's time with 578, where he came from immediately prior to joining the squadron, or any details additional to those in Chorley regarding the loss of NA618?

Although he is recorded in the 100 Squadron ORB and Chorley as "Mason", he was a member of the 100 Squadron Association and known to us all as "John Andrews-Mason".

Thanks in anticipation as always,
