Firstly let me commend you on a fabulous web page.
I am researching my family history and you have helped me with information regarding my 1st cousin twice removed Jack Turnbull who was a pilot officer with the 460 Squadron, killed on 18 Oct 1943 over Hanover.
I did not know until I found your page that he was in this squadron and now I am extremely interested to find out any information I can about him. In particular I would like to know which aircraft he was the captain of.
