My father Sgt 1178418 James Walter Gilbert was a crew member of Lancaster JB479 serial GT-K piloted by W/Cdr Eric Porter. I understand that they were the lead aircraft in this raid,they marked the target but were shot down shortly after,believed bt a night fighter,there were no survivors . Their collective grave was not found until 1952 ,they were later re- buried in Durnbach War Cementary. I would be grateful of any information or contact with relatives or friends of this crew. Peter Gilbert ( son).
