    Steve,

    If it is any help to others:

    Humphrey, Morgan, Reynolds, Gough and Allman were aboard No.218 Sqn Lancaster LM281 on 28-1-1945 (BCL/6/54), and became PoWs, and that Simpson, Halsall, Porter and White were aboard No.218 Sqn Lancaster NG450 and became PoWs on 22-2-1945 (BCL5/92). Bill Chorley states that Sgt J Halsall died of his injuries in 1950.

    Col.
