ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I'd like to thank Mike Wainwright, who is researching the events surrounding the loss of his father's Lancaster, with 44 Squadron RAF in 1944. Whilst doing this research he came across his mother's photos of her time with 460 Squadron at RAF Binbrook.

 

Can anyone help me with more information?

 

I need your help
