So it is I think, appropriate that as you can see in the above link, that Henk has the last word :)
I can't any details for any of these Airmen, but can I just say thank you for taking up the baton and continuing with Henk's work.
I'm sure Henk would be very pleased that he gets the last word!
John Love Died age 71 of Cancer of Coelom

Congratulations on reaching 31 December, 1947. You had to take over in very difficult circumstances, and being able to hang in there to the end is quite an achievement. Have a spell Mate, you've earned it. Bravo!
