    3008479 Aircraftman 2nd Class Charles Henry RIMAN

    The International Bomber Command Losses Database indicates that AC2 Riman was one of seven airmen killed by an explosion while ground crew were removing the bomb load of a Lancaster after an aborted mission to Le Havre on 9 September 1944.

    This is the incident at http://www.rafupwood.co.uk/dedicationgcrew.html
    but only mentions 6 names


    7 registered Huntingdon - and all on our DB already

    Gill William E 30 Huntingdon 3b 240 Scan available - click to view
    Mole James A 29 Huntingdon 3b 240 Scan available - click to view
    Burrowes Bartram E 28 Huntingdon 3b 241 Scan available - click to view
    Ellis James 23 Huntingdon 3b 241 Scan available - click to view
    Graham Thomas E H 25 Huntingdon 3b 241 Scan available - click to view
    Jones Herbert B 33 Huntingdon 3b 241 Scan available - click to view
    Thompson James F 41 Huntingdon 3b 242 Scan available - click to view

    However

    Charles Henry RIMAN is registered in Cambridge - possibly injured and died hospital ? - but as I said all others known to have been killed on bomb explosion of Lancaster ND978 at RAF Upwood - are registered Huntingdon

    Need to see if RIMAN KOAS and all rest KOAS ?


    Riman Charles H 19 Cambridge 3b 501

    I agree that AC2 Riman remains unclear; as we all know, even well-researched sources can contain errors!
