Have spent many years researching loss of my uncle's Lancaster MKIII.
Last year after much searching I located the crash site at Mollen N.W. of Duisburg.
I have an immense amount of material relating to this aircraft. Also a lot of material relating to 460 Squadron. Am currently assisting Bill Moffatt (N.S.W. 460 Squadron Association Secretary) with squadron archives. If I can help with any 460 Squadron info please contact me. My e-mail address is:-
Can anyone help me with more information?
