    Brian,

    using Geoff Sullivans search engine, for 524 Sqn that date are the following United Kingdom Personel:
    http://www.hut-six.co.uk/cgi-bin/search39-47.php

    001 BEZANT, AJ 195243 04/03/1945
    002 BOWERS, CW 56414 04/03/1945
    003 CRABTREE, A 139494 04/03/1945
    004 JONES, M 1506083 04/03/1945

    An assumption being made they were all on board with Bowers.

    Sometimes the older methods of looking at the paper records are better than internet searches.
