    Default 9 Sqn Lancaster Serial ME757

    hello Mike,

    Have you looked in on the new website that was noted on this site a few days ago ? All of the 9 BCL vols are now available - with updates - on line.

    It is at

    http://www.rafinfo.org.uk/BCWW2Losses/

    But for now,
    Taken from BCL vol 5
    Lancaster ME757 of 9 sqdn
    13th August 1944
    Crew
    F/L. E H M Relton +
    Sgt. F W Johnson +
    F/S. C H Edwards RAAF +
    F/S. J K Scott RAAF +
    F/S. C T Scott RAAF +
    F/S. D W McConville RAAF +
    F/S. W R Andrews

    T/o 0832 Bardney to bomb shipping. Crashed at Plougastel-Daoulas (Finistere ), 8km ESE of Brest.
    Six rest in Plougastel-Daoulas Communal Cemetery. The fate of F/S. Andrews is not indicated, but it is possible he was able to bale out, evading capture.

    F/S. Andrews name does however apear (on page 385) in the RAAF list for 1944 in Vol 9 of BCL.

    All the best
    Alex
