    Paul, Here is the full crew as I have it 9/16 Killed

    F/O Alfred Herbert RUSSELL DFC J8972 RCAF
    F/O Harry FORREST J16900 RCAF
    P/O Robert George LOCKE C18741 RCAF
    F/Sgt William ALEXANDER 1339058 RAF(VR)
    F/Sgt Donald Thomas BROMHEAD 1425899 RAF(VR) †
    F/Sgt David Cowan DOUGLAS 552117 RAF †
    S/L Philip Michael Hermann THOMAS 72030 RAF(VR) †
    F/Lt Richard Francis OAKES 64939 RAF
    F/O Herbert Douglas BLAIR J20044 RCAF †
    F/O Frank MOSS 421686 RAAF †
    P/O Richard John RUSSELL 146095 RAF(VR)
    F/Sgt W H ABRAHAM R116835 RCAF
    Sgt Randall HUNTER 1167146 RAF(VR) †
    Sgt Christopher George Edward WELLINGTON 1003031 RAF(VR) †
    Sgt George WILKINSON 916507 RAF(VR) †
    LAC Edward LOWSON 1005562 RAF(VR) †

    Bizarrely there were two RUSSELLS aboard, one the captain, the 2nd a P/O. but Abraham was definitely on board too.

    and cancel looking for LAWSON. He is Sgt Arthur Patrick Alphonse LAWSON R129528 RCAF who was commissioned in 1944 and became J19470
    Its nice to able to offer something back after all you've done

    Thanks

    4. Sgt D J JORGENSON R60588 204 Squadron aboard DV974 when it crashed at Bathurst on 1/10/1943.


    I believe this is
    David Jonard Jorgenson Born 1919 died Feb 16 1991 Vancouver, British Columbia

    there is a photo of him and a family tree on ancestry.ca if anyone has an account on this prehaps they can reach out and confirm/deny

    14. Sgt G H FLEMING R187276 422 Squadron who was aboard W6028 when it crashed in Enniskillen on 20th February 1944.

    Possibly

    George Howard Fleming Born 1922 Dec 8 1993 Edmonton (Second Wife Vivian) RCAF member

    First Wife Alice Olivet Fleming 1916 1989

    Edmonton Journal Edmonton Alberta Dec 10 1989

    Obit says RCAF Veteran (222 Squadron) sic - I wonder if typo for 422 Squadron

    I also found a reference

    Sgt Air Gunner George Howard Fleming RCAF married at HOBBEMA Elizabeth (Betty) Maude Law circa

    Again there are a number of family tree on Ancestry that could used accessed to as
    Edmonton Journal Edmonton Alberta Canada 29 June 1944

    May be another person from above
