    If it is indeed Julius Kramer, there's a photo of him here - it also mentions him being at 1651 H.C.U. with his crew:

    Hi Simon,

    Thank you for the link, nice to put a face to a name. Can confirm that Kramer arrived at No.3 LFS on February 28th 1944 via No.1651 CU. He was part of No.13 Course, on completion of his conversion he and his crew were posted to No.51 Base on March 14th, from there I presume he was posted to 61 Squadron.

    thank you again.
