    Maybe cross-post at the RAF Commands forum - worth a go anyway.

    Hope you can get more info Peter. Got some good news for you - my ex-wife has found the colour photos I took at east Kirkby, in 1991, with your Grandfather in the pilot's seat of the Lanc, and the other guys in their crew positions. Soon as I receive the prints, I'll scan them and send you copies.

    That would be fantastic, thank you so much
    Have built up some more info since we last spoke, I have 1 group sumaries from may to July 44 and 3 complete raid reports. No results from Germany ref the crash site as of yet
    Also have a few pictures of the aftermath of some of the raids.
    Still in contact with larry naylors son, as we debate who shotnlm546 down.
    I noticed Norman's son posted on the board, I contacted him but sadly no reply
    Take care of your health in this cold
    Pete

    Have no contact details, tried what was on his profile no joy
    Have you come across your original painting, the one where the aircraft gets attacked?

    I should have Norman's address, if that's any use?
    The drawing of 'Oozlum Bird' on fire is with my ex-wife - I'll ask her to photograph it, and send you a copy.
