    Default Avro Lancaster B.III, serial ED998, coded PO*Y - Looking for pictures

    Dear all,

    I am currently finishing and polishing the biography of Wing Commander Cosme Lockwood Gomm, D.S.O., D.F.C. (RAFO 34123) who was born in Brazil (Curitiba, Paraná State – like Clostermann and Hauptmann Egon Albrecht) and was the first O.C. of Nº 467 (RAAF) Squadron.

    Gomm and his crew died onboard of the Avro Lancaster B.III serial number ED998, coded PO*Y which we would like to obtain a photograph.

    This particular machine was flown, at some time or another, between May and August 1943, by the following Captains and members of Nº 467 Squadron (so maybe at least ONE picture of it do exist - which we are trying to find, to add to this biography): F/Sgt Harder or Rarder, F/O Carrington, P/O Good, F/Sgt Vincent, S/L Lewis, DFC.

    ANY picture of ED998 is most welcomed onto this Biography and will be fully credited onto this work, as well as any additional pictures that relatives of members of Nº 467 Squadron or Nº 77 Squadron may have of Cosme Lockwood Gomm.

    Contact about the project:

    Hi Adriano, I am afraid the only thing I can recommend is to search the Australian War Memorial archive online:

    This link would take you to the search result of 467 Sq and try your luck.
