    Hi Harold, I have seen few reports of the crash sent to the Air Ministry with the ifo which MU was asked but these reports I saw were of crashes with regard to Czechoslovak airmen in our archive in Prague.
    I do not know if those also survived in TNA?
    Maybe someone more familiar with the archive can help you.

    Default Remembrance of crew.

    Hi Halifax
    Sounds like you have loads of stuff which others would be interested in. If not already done I am sure that the aircrew remembrance site would love to put an entry on for you. Its not just for operational sqn crews... Do you have any computer whiz grandkids/nieces/nephews who could create you a free webpage so the information will be out there in the ether? You might also try posting some stuff to www.cfww2.com forum re the Aussie crewmembers.
    Good hunting and I am sure the info will just keep coming.
