    Default Lancaster LL774, 101 Sqdn, lost 15/10/44

    Hi all.

    Could anyone assist with any furthr information on Lancaster LL774 of 101 squadron that was lost on the night raid to Duisburg on 15/10/44.

    I am trying to get hold of any crew pictures or anyone who has contact with family / relatives etc in order to try to get further information about this loss. I already have the basic details from Chorleys etc. If anyone has further details on the crew, the loss or the bomber itself, please contact me.

    All commemorated on Runnymede memorial

    Cheers.

    Marc,

    I can't help you with info on this crew but how important is it for you to find info and photos on the crewmembers?Because if you will not find out more about them via this forum it is worth a try to contact the local newspaers in the hometowns of the crewmembers which I assume you already found at the CWGC site.Often the local newspaper is willing to make an appeal in their newspaper and I have experienced it as the best way to get in contact with relatives of airmen.The best way by the way is to send a letter instead of an e-mail.
