Sadly many names seem to be missing from your website.
For example I am trying to find a reference to one Hector Meadus who served with RCAF as a navigator in WW2 but there is no mention of his name anywhere.
What is the history of Lancaster bomber aircraft R.5666
John Proffitt Chairman, BAF Bureau
Please accept our sincere thanks for providing the article regarding missing Air Crew from WWII and to assist in search for relatives.
It is believed that my father is a cousin of Pilot Officer William Proffitt White of Halifax LK709 that did not return after a bombing raid over Berlin in January 1944.
We did search for information for a number of years and
this will bring some closure to know of what happened and also that a rededication service with military honours will take place to commemorate the Air Crew of RAF Halifax LK709 after all these years.
Congratulations for the memory of World War II Veterans. Great site dedicated to the history.

Hi, for more than thirty years I am searching all about
Spitfire Mk.VIII F, JF344 flown by John McAndrew Brodie, 32. squadron RAF, Foggia Italy. Pilot died at 14.02.1944 near Baska Voda, Yugoslavia.
I need a personal letter of the aircraft that comes after "GZ" squadron code. Where to look?
Congratulations with your fine website and with the major and important remembrance aim ! Best to you and good luck further on.
I am trying to find any information on FS Leslie Robert Willis Flight Engineer 170 Sqn based at Hemswell, shot down in Lancaster NN744 TC-V over Aijen (Limburg) Holland on the night of 21/22 Feb 1945, he survived the crash but died of his wounds in a german hospital on 6 Apr 45. Any photos or information on their final mission would be greatly appreciated. He also served for a short period with 103 Sqn at Elsham Wolds and indeed survived a crash landing in Lancaster LM293 on that base.
I am trying to find any photographs of the flight crew of my uncle's Lancaster 111. His name was James Tweedie, Service No. 1067394. He was in 156 pathfinders Squad. Aircraft EE122 and was shot down and killed in June 1943
Any information would be most hepful
I'm ex RAF and live walking distance from the crash site of 515 Sqn Mosquito PZ344-3P within which Flt/Lt L'Aime and F/O Smith lost their lives. I've inspected the site and found various pieces of wreckage which has been confirmed as belonging to a Mosquito. The location details posted on this site are slightly inaccurate, not too far off though. I will be honouring these gentlemen regularly an would be happy to share any information.
Hello all, I'm looking for information on my Grandad. He was Flight Sargeant Henry Walter Gibson. I believe he was of 7th Squadron. He passed in an accident from RAF Oakhampton on 15 October 1959.
We don't have many living who can tell me more about his RAF life I would love to know more.
My uncle, Sgt RH Alvey, was a WO/AG in Coastal Command (489 sqdn, then briefly in 144 sqdn). His Hampden was shot down over SW Norway - all four crew were killed: Pilot was S/Ldr JRD Hird, Bomb aimer was Sgt DW Hepplewhite, the other WO/AG was Sgt RJ Coles. They are commemorated at Runnymede. MRES could find no evidence of burial on land - thought to have been buried at sea by the Germans. I am writing a biography of my uncle. Would welcome contact with families of other crew members.
I have a picture of my uncle Fl/Eng PO Norman Alfred Smith of 424 Squadron Halifax III MZ901 downed Oct 15/44 buried in Idom Denmark. I would like to add Norman's Picture to the site and would welcome contact from family of the other 6 crew members.
Excellent site! Hoping to get my late father (Sqn Ldr Peter Stevens MC) added.

I am looking for more info on the above cousin of mine
any picturesor info on how he died etc
You have an excellent forum Kelvin.
I have just discovered your page regarding the 7Sqn Stirling R9270, reportedly shot down on the evening of 8/9 March 1943. I just wanted to thank you for the compilation. My aunt (mother's sister) is the daughter of P.O. Gosper DFC, who was killed in that action. As my grandmother (98, still alive!) was never married to P.O. Gosper, her connection with the family was lost over the years, and my aunt has little knowledge of, or information regarding, her father. I have only just come to realize through your page that he was decorated.
