    Hello, Bangalore, and welcome to the forum.
    The reason I joined this forum was due to seeing a post for info on a 625 Sqn Lanc's last op. Coincidentally, I had painted a picture of this particular aircraft, prints of which were signed by the surviving crew members, in 1991.
    You'll find three members of the forum with connections to 625, the first being Jupiter (Pete), who's Grandfather was the pilot of the A/C I painted, and my reason for joining here. The other is Mike156, who has been researching into some ops , and finally, Nic Lewis, '625 Secretary', who is not only a member, but secretary of the 625 Sqn Association. See his initial post on PAGE 2. A Pm to him, and/or Pete and Mike, would, I think, provide some info. Hope you find what you want, good luck.
    Terry.
