    Default Short Stirling LJ873 Ussen

    Hello,
    I'm investigating the emergancy landing of Short Stirling LJ873 on September the 23rd 1944. The plane belonged to 620 squadron RAF and was flown by squadron commander Donald Henry Lee D.F.C. The plane landed in Ussen , just west of Oss ( Holland). All crew members survived and evaded. The complete crew was:
    Pilot: Donald Henry Lee D.F.C 33140
    Navigator: E.Pratt
    Flight Engineer: B.Naylor
    Bomb Aimer: J.P.Baker
    Wireless Operator:A.D.Heard D.F.M. 172746
    Air Gunner: M.Hennessey
    There were also two air despatchers on board.
    I'm trying to find the relatives of the crew members and infomation about the plane/crew.
    Can anyone help me?
    Regards Mike
