    Hello all,

    I am new here also - RAAF 410927 Flt Sgt K C Walker, (Wireless Operator Air) was my great uncle who died in the LM158 crash. My parents have his medals and some badges hanging on their wall, here in Victoria, Australia.

    I am amazed to find the information here by chance today, and it is fantastic to see the articles posted in this thread.

    Wim Wensink, I would love to hear what your grandmother remembers of this event.

    I am humbled by the amazing care the town has taken to look after the crew of LM158. I will make a trip to visit the graves and the wonderful people who care for them in the near future.

    Thank you to everyone here for the information. Lest we forget.

    Perrin

    Wim Wensink, can you please email me "pezcat19 at hotmail.com". I would like to find out more from you, and also share the information I have regarding my great uncle RAAF 410927 Flt Sgt K C Walker, (Wireless Operator Air / Gunner) who died in the LM158 crash. My father has informed me that a family by the name of "Wolzak" had a lot to do with the care of the graves, and were in regular contact with my grandmother here in Victoria Australia until she passed. I wonder if you know of them?

    I hope to hear from you on the email.

    Regards,

    Perrin
