    If Fanstone was a rear gunner and came from No. 223 squadron or went there after service on No. 78 squadron:

    I think this is the right man, but I don't know where he came from to join 78 Squadron. He left 78 Squadron on the 18th April 1945 moving to RAF North Creake as part of 100 Group, I suspect he went to 199 Squadron or 171 Squadron.

    Thanks
