    Default Wellington BX LP730 (crash 09/17/1944 - Italy)

    I am Italian and I would like to point out that with some friends we have identified the crash site and recovered some pieces of the Wellington BX LP730 of the RAF 150 Sqn crashed in the mountains near Bagolino on 17 September 1944.

    Crew:
    Sgt Bernard FAGAN (1563239) Air Bomber RAFVR
    Sgt Ernest HAIGH (1533134) Air Gunner RAFVR
    F/O Harold Oswald HOLLIS (146953) Wireless Op RAFVR
    F/Lt John RUSSELL (80195) Pilot RAFVR
    Sgt Idris WILLIAMS (1683552) Navigator RAFVR

    I am available to share information.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. If you have not already looked, our database entry:
    http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=LP730
    has links to the CWGC entry for these men, plus links to the ORB of 150 Sqn at that time, which can be downloaded for free from The National Archives.
