    It has now been established that W5000 was in fact QR-N and NOT QR-B

    Hi Tony.
    I am brand new to this site and also very new to computers and messaging. I have attempted to reach you from (I think) a different site but on the same subject. You have listed here a "George MacKenzie" as one of the crew. He was Gordon William Mackenzie and my full cousin. It also appears that there may be a memorial at the crash site and I would obviously want a copy of any photographs that may exist. I would also welcome the opportunity to write to as many of the crew relatives as possible. I live in Canada now and at 80 years of age very unsure if I will ever be able to visit the crash site so anything I can gain via this web site would be most welcome.
    Regards,
    Robert Allan
