    Henk, Finn.

    Very many thanks for that. My father is commemorated on panel 80 of the Air Forces Memorial, Runnymede. I thought I'd like to research the names directly above and below dads name, I have details of the one above, Churcher, it was the one below I didn't have, Clark.

    Once again, many thanks.

    Regards
    Peter.
