    Curious to know what will happen to the names on the panel at Runnymede? Will the whole panel be replaced? or the names just left alone?

    IIRC think the panels are occasionally replaced under a maintenance schedule - when they are they are updated

    150 Sqdn
    16 July 1944
    Wellington HF736

    The crew were apparently all Sergeants. The Captain was Bryan Leslie Munday from Wembley, aged 23. Other members were: James Melville Charles Oakley, from St John's Wood, London; Lionel Arthur Walter Francis, 23, from Stanstead Abbots, Herts; Nevil Ward Brown, 22, from Beckenham, Kent; and Jack Charles Langley Stacey, 21, from Spalding, Lincs.

    cheers

    Our DB seems to link them to LP503 and to the date 1944-07-17 , should this be corrected?

    https://www.rafcommands.com/database...php?uniq=LP503

    Air Britain serials has LP503 as lost on 7.7.44, and HF736 as SOC in April 44. Anyone have the volume two of Med Bomber Losses?

    Med Bomber Losses also says LP503.
    I can't find the AM78 for HF736, so unable to check - anyone?
