An enormous number of people have helped me to gather together much of the information found on this web site. It is thanks to them that I have been able to piece together the fates of some of the aircrews who were killed in action during WW2. Relatives of many of the men who were killed knew little or nothing regarding the fates of their loved ones, the aircraft simply being reported as 'missing'. As one of those relatives I extend my sincere and heartfelt thanks to all those who have assisted me in my quest to discover what happened to my grandfather over 60 years ago. Thank you all.
