Found this site when under going some research into my 1st cousin, once removed, John Richard Charles Donohue DFC - serial number - 178567. He served with 158 squadron then transferred to Pathfinders 635 squadron in the Summer of 1944. He lost his life on a raid to Chemnitz on the 14th Feb 1945 along with all the crew except the rear gunner (J T McQuillan) whilst being a member of the crew in Lancaster PB287.

Interested to find out more about his service so that I can record this in the family tree I am currently updating. As far as I know there are no pictures of the crew unless anyone knows differently.

They must never be forgotten and my visit to the Bomber Command Memorial a couple of years back made me more then ever, aware of the sacrifices made by so many serving men.

Researching for FO David Sparrow and his navigator Victor Brown. Their 151 Squadron Mosquito NF2 was shot down over the Netherlands 21/4/43. They were both 21 years old. David was from Gravesend and known to have been a choirboy in St. Georges Church. If anyone has any further information I would be very interested to hear.

I am one of the sons of Air Gunner Sergeant William Johnson who was involved in operation Secquaville with Flight Lieutenant Richard Polandri. I might have more information you might like to know.I was told Richard Polandri was 26, which was regarded as old by the rest of the crew. And my father was 21 and from Blyth Northumberland.

I have been researching my fathers wartime service as an Air Gunner with 207 Squadron RAF (then at Spilsby) during 1944/45 for many years and am fortunate enough to have a detailed record of all his operational sorties over this period, primarily whilst operating with PO Norman Owen and the crew of Lancaster ND555 EM-D.

This aircraft was subsequently lost (I cannot recall where now but it was on a raid over Germany) and I am hoping that your site will assist me in this.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren!
Seit Jahren beschäftige ich mich mit Kriegsereignisse aus dem zweiten Weltkrieg in Westdeutschland.Da ich auch in verschiedene Archive recherchiere fällt mir einiges auf.Bei Euch ist mir die Eintragung über Lt. Wilhelm Nink aufgefallen.Wilhelm Nink wurde am 23.09.1944 bei Aalten in den Niederlanden von Fighter der USAAF abgeschossen.Ein selbsternannter Historiker aus Haltern hat auch diese Absturzstelle nach Haltern verlegt,wie viele andere Abstürze auch.Ich hoffe Euch einen Hinweis gegeben zu haben.Mit freundlichen Grüßen Alfred Vadder.

Whilst sorting through my late mothers effects i came across some letters written to her by P/O Dougals Lindsay Cropper who died circa 23.08.41 of 609 squadron.Last based at Biggin Hill.
They are of a personal nature but provide an insight to feelings towards the enemy and towards his sorties over France.They cover the period november 1940 to August 1941. There is also a small group photo that could be posted on your web site.Are these letters likely to be of interest to your archivist?
