    Unfortunately, I do not have a photograph of this aircraft's crew. However, it may be possible that if John Johnston or Nick Carter, who were the authors of 149 Squadron history "Strong By Night", are members of the forum or Steve Smith, who co-wrote "3 Group Bomber Command" with Chris Ward, still visits the forum, they may be able to help you.

    Bill Chorley's Bomber Command Losses 1942 records the crew of N6081 OJ-H as : -

    W/C C Charlton-Jones
    P/O C D Dobson RNZAF
    Sgt. W M Hughes
    Sgt. E D Butler
    Sgt. D McNamee
    Sgt. C Steel
    Sgt. T Hickman
    Sgt. J W Gray

    With the exception of Sgt. Hughes and Steel who became PoW's, the other members of the crew were killed and are now buried in Durnbach War Cemetery.

    Best wishes

    Douglas
