I have recently found this old post in the archive - it popped up in a search for "halifax W1111". Sgt Eric Jackman was my mother's brother and would have been my uncle. Can anyone point me to the "Chad" who posted this notice as I would be very interested in taking a look at the photos he mentions.

"Sqdn 405 Halifax Photo I found..can someone provide more info?"
Doing some research on my Grandfather (PERCY ROBERT (BOB) SPURGEON from the 405 and 148) and today I discovered a picture he had in his records. It shows a bomber crew, with individual photos and is described as follows:

"CREW OF HALIFAX BOMBER RCAF SQUADRON 405 POSTED MISSING ON NIGHT OPERATIONS OVER ESSEN GERMANY NIGHT OF JUNE 8-9 1942"

Names of the crew mentioned as follows:


Flt/Sgt Will Plant (Toronto Canada)
Flt/Sgt Eric Jackman (Bristol England)
Flt/Sgt T.R.M. Cattle (Toronto Canada)
Flt/Sgt Joseph Fleming (Bristol England)
Flt/Sgt G.R. Montgomery (Chapleu Ontario, Canada)
Flt/Sgt Reginald Holland (Bournmouth England)
P/O D Gordon Morris (St Johns Newfoundland)


Anyone have any information on this???

Chad.
