    Hi,

    I'm looking for informations (serial of a/c, crew etc.) about the following airman:


    61 Sqn Lancaster ???
    Sgt H R Cronchey + Cronchey baled out in the vicinity of
    Bremerhaven. He rests in Becklingen War
    Cemetery.

    His death is not mentioned in the BCL.

    regards

    Hi Again
    Like Riddler ,1891269 Sgt Henry Richard Cronchey is in Chorley Vol 9 suggesting an a/c returned safe minus a crew member. The same 207 Sqn website points to 50 Squadron Gerry Collins, 35 Wetherby Crescent, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN6 8SY: tel 01522 681482 [FWH 02/01] a personal site: http://personal.nbnet.nb.ca/garlandb/bomber.html as a possible source of information it is indicated on the 207 website as covering 61 Sqn as well as 50
    Regards
    Dick
