Hi, I would like to provide an update to this thread with some information about the Liberator B24 crew lost in Bahamas on February 23rd, 1945 (listed above). My name is Vivian Cribbes Guerra, currently living in San Diego, George Deryk Cribbes (mentioned above) was my fatherís only brother. Unfortunately, I never met but have always been interested in knowing more about him. We have a webpage dedicated to his memory; it contains some details about his life: personal and in the RAF - Here is Deryk's Webpage:
