You Are To Carry On, Good Luck Z-Zebra

CREDITS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS



We appeal to relatives of the crew with further information and/or photographs to please contact us via the Helpdesk



On behalf of Aircrew Remembered, researcher Roy Wilcock would like to thank the following without whose help most of this story would never have been told.  Listed in order of contact they are: 

Truda Newman (Cousin of Bill Schrader) for putting me in touch with John Schrader in the first place.

John Schrader for his invaluable help in providing and granting the use of details and photographs of his father William Guthrie Schrader and the most valuable contribution of his father's Wartime Log that gives such a detailed account of the crew's last mission and thus remains central to the story of the loss of Lancaster ED804 AR-Z (Zebra).

Carol Morgan (Niece of Charles Harrison) for her sterling work in sending the many photographs and images relating to her Uncle Charlie's life and for putting up with my never ending questions and queries without complaint.  

Florence Morgan nee Harrison (Sister of Charles Harrison) for providing and granting the use of many family photographs, her brother's personal letters and her mother's personal records. Florence also contributed invaluable help through her first-hand accounts of her family and the times. 

Though her involvement in the compilation of this story proved to be a very emotional experience, Florence remained steadfastly determined in her desire for it to be a fitting tribute to her brother Charlie and all of the crew of Lancaster ED804 AR-Z. We sincerely hope it is.
