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.

My uncle Sgt. John Arthur Ridgway of 101 Sqdrn. RAF gave his life, aged 20, on 3rd May 1944 at Mailly-le-Camp. My brother and I were named in honour of John and his twin brother James, who died in action shortly afterwards at Monte Cassino, Italy.

Our eternal thanks go out to them - and may they rest in peace.

Thank you very much for your part in helping us to discover the details surrounding their actions.
If there are any photographs of the crew of Lancaster DV275 with Pilot Officer Baker and the others, we would love to see them - and I will search for any that our family might have that would of interest to others.

Does anyone have an image of Panel 19, Column 1 on the Malta memorial please? I am led to believe my uncle, James Mills died when the plane he was in went missing between Naples and France in November 1945. My father, his brother has never been able to visit the memorial and is now too frail to travel, but would really appreciate sight of Jimmy's place on the roll.

On behalf of Mrs Ruth Wilson I would like to express her sincere thanks for the research you have carried out concerning her brother W.O. Douglas Scott McGregor DFM and the loss of the crew on Lancaster LM750 from 153 Squadron on 3rd. March 1945. Much of the history of his loss was unknown to Mrs Wilson and her family, and through your admirable efforts and inspiring website his memory can live on. Keep up the good work Kelvin.

Thanks so much for including an in-depth page on The Richmond Crew of Wellington HZ 471 out of East moor and listed as FTR May 29/30, 1943. I never got to know my uncle Sam Levitt, navigator with that crew. My mother (his sister) never gave up trying to find out what happened to them but was never able to get closure. My research uncovered a lot of information and now it will be preserved for all to see on your wonderful website. Thank you very much.

We found the graves of this crew on a visit to Bayeux. Having done our 'own' photographs we moved around the graves and found the two stones together and two beside them. The graves had Austraiona flags on them and crosses with poppies. On our arrival home I found out all that I could about the men. It made an interesting and very sad story. Thank you for the extra information. It is also good to see the photographs.

I am related to Air/Gnr Frank Banks who was killed in WellingtonX LN385 (Salerno). My grandfather Enoch Banks (b.1900 in Wednesfield nr Willenhall Staffordshire) was the brother of Frank Banks's father Abraham Banks (b. 1895). I don't have much more info on Franks family (have a picture when he was about 7!), his sister Hazel emigrated to Australia (who has since died)but there are living offspring (unsure where though!). I believe his wife Ivy nee Blount married again to Stanley Jarvis and had a son Robert?, but that's all I'm afraid. If there is any info you can release regarding the crash I would appreciate it, my wife and I are compiling a family tree so we would be very interested. Jonathan Pountney
