    Hi Dave,

    Thank you very much for the quick reply and the excellent link! I did not know it.

    I looked for him in the F/Sgt Oliver's crew in January/February ...

    Lancaster ND342

    Hi Mojmir,

    If you click on "crew lists" it shows Asquith was only on his 2nd operation with No. 156 Squadron. Other aircraft serial was ND559 on ops to Friedrichschaffen 27 April 1944, skipper 1576092 F/Sgt WJ Ward.

    His previous squadrons: http://www.550squadronassociation.or...en.php?id=6525
