On August 26, 1944, Lancaster KB708 "VR-E" of 419 Squadron crashed in England after returning from a raid over Germany. Four crew members - Pilot - F/O William Arthur Milner (RCAF); F/Eng - Sgt. John Leonard Trotman (RAF), Bomb aimer - F/O Irving Jack Kirschner (RCAF); and, WO/AG - F/Sgt. Howard Anderson (RCAF) were all killed. Three other crewmen were injured: Nav - F/O Pierre E. Gariepy (RCAF); AG - Sgt. L.J. Weston (RCAF); and, AG - Sgt. Peter Wiens (RCAF). Gariepy's spine was severed and he became a paraplegic.

I am interested in learning more about this flight and the individuals involved. I have seen the write-up on the Aircrew Remembered website but I'd like to make contact with any relatives of crew members or researchers who have looked into this crash in more detail.

Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated.
