    Default 104 Sqn

    Hi All

    I've received a request from a relative of a crew member of a Wellington of No 104 SQn which crashed in Italy on 21 Sep 1944.

    The rear gunner was Sgt R G Garner and Sgt S Horder was the Bomber aimer who was killed.

    Does anyone know the identity of this aircraft (serial and code letter) and the names of the rest of the crew?

    All the best

    Malcolm

    Many thanks Henk

    If that was their only loss that day then it's a likely candidate.
