I think I may have the WW2 Flight training and Air Navigation manuals for Flight Lieutenant D C Maltby. Dated 1938 and stamped Nottingham RAFVR on the front.
Hello, My best friends father was the navigator on this mission. The crew survived after being shot down and spent the remainder of the war as pows.
Crew member Segeant David Dickson is burried in Brielle. We will remember him on the 25th of december every year.
My father was the flight engineer on the Lancaster Bomber DS667 when it was shot down 2/1/1944. He was taken a Prisoner of War but never knew the fate of his colleagues. He is now deceased and I am trying to trace if any of his fellow crew are still alive. I know most barring the pilot did survive the crash and also became POW's but in different camps to my father. Any connections helpful.
I don't know who you are but you are DEFINITELY NOT the great nephew of John Bennett Charters. I am his niece so I know you are a liar! John wasn't even on this mission. He died on 28 July 1943 taking part in Operation Gomorrah. I don't know why you have done this, I think it is sick and it is also fraud. Message to the moderators of this site - please take down his comment immediately. It is fraudulent and it is upsetting to my family.
My Mother-in-Law's first husband was Flight Engineer on this flight, which was shot down over Mierlo, Netherlands. His wife remarried and, while Sidney and his crew mates' loss is sad, without Sidney Marsh's sacrifice, my husband, Simon Currie, would never have been born. We will remember him.
My wife's uncle FH Jones was the observer on this mission. The title of the item is misleading as the mission was to Paderborn 1940-7-30, not Dinant on 1940-7-29. We have his full RAF history from enlisting in 1924, and we have his medals. The photograph of a crashed Blenheim is not relevant to this mission, which crashed into a river.
Hello, Flt Sgt J.C.Lee was aboard that flight. He rests in Clay Lane Cemetary, Yardley, Birmingham.

Thank you for this amazing historical record and honouring of the crew of VN-AD828. Although it is now over 80 years since, some things require stating for the record. Pilot Officer David Evan Frank Powell was my uncle - although he was killed-in-action 24 years before my birth. He died only 4 months after his 20th birthday. His Hampden light bomber was shot down by a German Luftwaffe night fighter. David's loss devastated and affected his mother Susanne Powell (my grandmother) for life an
I am creating a Profile of Mustang III UZ T FX873 flown by F/L E. Tomanek with 306 Squadron. This information was given to me by his daughter, he survived the war. The photo you have with his information is a P-51D whereas F/L Tomanek was flying a Mustang III FX873 with a 'Malcom Hood'
I live very close to the crash site and my late father recounted details of the crash. I know the exact location of the crash site. This was a dummy airfield in the valley nearby. It was used to attract enemy bombing away from populated areas. The halifax was low on fuel and attempted to land on what appeared to be a safe runway. Unfortunately the aircraft crashed into the valley. Surviving crew attempted to reach the local village but sadly all perished. I am hoping to raise awareness and e
Is the any more information on the1958 Quartermaster Truck Company?
Arthur Lee (Navigator) was the only survivor of LM380 and was taken prisoner. After the war the German soldier who took him prisoner erected a 3metre tall Cross in Katzenelnbogen forest in remembrance of the crew of LM380. The Cross has the same words on it as the Cross in Coventry Cathedral "Father Forgive".
My father was in the 3012th and trained with them in Texarkana in the winter of 1944 before heading out to the UK. He was PFC Theodore W. Wolff and he photographed their training FTX. Note the pictures and the unit photograph to include their names. I alos have patches and images of his stay in the UK and their cross channel shipping. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmX13bCv Ted Wolff
My uncle Charlie Cartwright was the sole survivor from Lancaster JB 7205, call sign OF-S ,shot down on a bombing raid to Stettin . 5/6 Jan. 1944. Flt. Sgt. /Engineer. Landed on a frozen lake , cuts to his head believed to be inflicted by his captors. Ultimately transferred to Stalag Luft 111, Sagan. Was apparently planning an escape from Stalag Luft 111 with a French Commando. Unable to shed any more information with regard to his time spent as a prisoner, or subsequent Post-War rele
My father flew this aircraft (LL948) in May/June/July/August 1944 during his first Tour with 106 Squadron at Metherington (I have his log book) He was Flight Engineer and then went on to become an instructer with a different squadron. The remainder of his crew were Canadian and the captain was F/O Harris. I am assuming this is a stock photo of a Lancaster I aircraft?
Puff of Smoke. Was this written by you? Stephen
My grandfather was the pilot
