    Hello,

    can you help ?

    W/O Carroll
    F/S Cook
    F/S Gooden
    F/S Turner

    Alain,

    There were TWO COOK's with 166 Sqn:
    F/O (Nav) Aubrey E. COOK - 143852 - who was killed 28-1-1944 on Lancaster W4996, and
    F/O (Pilot) Eric J. COOK - 130615 - who was killed 30/31-8-1943 on Wellington LN397.
    I found also:
    Sgt (Flt Eng) William G. ANGLES - 1893084 - who was killed 14-10-1944 on Lancaster PD224, and
    F/Sgt (Airbomber) Ralph W. CARROLL - RCAF R/176957 - who was killed 16-11-1944 on Lancaster PB648.
    Regards,

    Long time since i posted here, I hope you and everyone else is well :)

    Hi Greg,
    If i get the CD, would you like a copy anyway (no charge) to save you transforming your film over. I got confirmation of my order on 27th Oct, so hope it's not going to be long now.
    Alan.

    Hi Greg,
    Cornwall's ok, pway, all in the past. After 21yrs, i got fed up with the way it was going, maintenance wise, took EVR 30th April 2010, and i'm now a very happy caretaker at a local infant school, 5hrs a day, and only £200 a month worse off, but without all the hassle, night shifts and weekend working. It's like i've died and gone to heaven.
    Cheers.......Alan.

    Hello Greg !

    I was thinking you was lost somewhere in the mountains of Wales !
    Glad to hear from you !
    I am near to finish my work on SDF Binbrook, by the way would you have something of 460 squadron ORB ? and notably on P/O Humphris, when he leave his squadron for SDF ?

    Alain with all the sun from Moorea !
