Hello. Thank you for this wonderful web page. My Dad's brother was Air/Gnr: P/O. Gerald Albion Kent C/90305 RCAF of the No. 420 Squadron Halifax III LK803 PT-H. Sadly, he was killed with the rest of his crew on July 19, 1944 during a fighter affiliation training exercise. According to my Mother, he wasn't supposed to be on that flight but took the place of his friend who wanted to stay behind to be with his girlfriend. My parents have shared wonderful stories about Gerald and finding this web page brought me a bit closer to the man who would have been my uncle. From all accounts, he was a wonderful person. Thank you again for the hard work in putting this website together.

Thank you to all involved in this amazing website. Not only are you honouring lost loved ones, you have created a wonderful resource for historians studying war and genealogists tracking ancestors. I appreciate knowing more about the final flight of my ancestor than is offered on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site. Sad and brief though it is, the information gives me more insight into this man's service than just his name and critical dates.

I was a young boy playing football with friends when we witnessed Wellington Bomber X3547 strike a barrage balloon cable and its tragic crash at Leighton, Crewe on the site of the now Leighton Hospital.
I seem to remember a second smaller aircraft possibly a fighter weaving about behind the Wellington prior to it making contact with the balloon cable.
I now live about 2 miles from Byley Churchyard where two members of the aircrew now rest.
So sad and in memory of the many brave young lives lost.

Thanks for this site - it has helped me resolve a mystery in researching my father's career in Bomber Command. He served with 576 squadron at Fiskerton in November 1944 before transferring with several other crews t0 150 Squadron at Hemswell. His last flight from Fiskerton was in NN750, which was lost on 29 December 44 in a crash at Manston in Kent. Squadron records are patchy but I wasn't sure whether one crew member had survived (he did, F/S Lake), and I couldn't decipher one of the names, but now I can complete my history thanks to your website. In memory of the six who did not survive.

He flew for the British as member of the polish army, but he was part of the german minority in poland. He is a part of my family. I was born in germany and live here. I am proud to know about him. One day I will visit his grave.

Thank you for all the work you do. I have been able to find out a little more about my grand-uncle F/O Frank McGlone (90 Sqdn), who was killed in July 1944. Having these details will hopefully help move me forward in my research. Thanks.

My Dad, Bert Mead, served in 10 Squadron as a rear gunner from 1940-1942 at Pembroke Dock and Plymouth. I had heaps of photos and his war record but my home burned down on 19 March 2013 and I lost everything. Dad died in 1975. Would love some photos and memorabilia of 10 Squadron. Can anyone direct me to a website where I can find these?

Was really interested to see the reason for the renaming of Lake Spankie.My father who was a navigator in RAF spent time in Toronto, Canada during his training.I think this was in 1943. He also underwent training in Lincolnshire. He came from Dundee,Scotland and met my mother in Manchester, England just before he went to Canada. They married after the war and settled in Manchester. Seems so strange that my dad was in Canada possibly at the same time as Fl/Lt Edward Spankie was stationed in England.Feel sure that there must be a family connection in the distant past.Hope to pay my respects in person some day.

Thank you for posting this information. Abraham Holden was my maternal grandfather. He had just become father to a baby girl, Gillian, when died. I am now sharing his story with my daughter. It's a very emotional experience.

Dad was in Bomber Command flying on Short Stirlings with 7 Squadron at Oakington, Cambridgeshire. In his memoirs of that time he writes about some of his fellow airmen who didn't return. If anyone is interested the book is 'Of Stirlings and Stalags: an air-gunner's tale' by WE 'Bill' Goodman. If you put the title into Google you'll find it on Amazon or Lulu. He writes about so many of his fellow crewmen that it would be difficult to name them all here...but it seems to be a good resource for those wanting to find what happened to former relatives.

This is a brilliant site... and I'm heartened that so many are working to remember those we lost during that terrible time. We owe them our respect and our deep thanks.

Whilst sourcing information for a family history project I came across the link to your site, I was totally amazed to find a photo here of my uncle Edward James Boakes and his squadron LM720. I only have one other photo of him taken outside his hut on base. To see him with his other pals was incredible. Thank you to the Earl family and all concerned for this page. info.

My father Eric Stafford was a wireless operator in 61 Sqn and I have noticed in his flying log book that he did about 20 flights in Lancaster LM720, the last flight was on 25 Dec 1944 , where he then transferred to Lancaster EE176 just three weeks before LM720 crashed. I wonder why he transferred aircraft.
