My father was a Flying Officer with 207 Squadron Spilsby and he was killed on the 15/16 july 1944 over Northern France the op:Nevers t/o 2214 spilsby to bomb railway yards the lancaster recon no me807 em-s.Iknow that its a small chance but i would really like to be able to contact any pilots that might have been at spilsby at that time, i know that the lads are all getting on, and i would really appreciate it if there was still someone out there.
Thanks for drawing my attention to this web page.
The way I have laid it out obviously causes confusion and I will alter it.
The crew photo is that of LM751 and not ND932 with your husbands father.
The photo itself can be copied easily and enlarges when clicked on and would not be any better than was sent to me if I forwarded it on to you.
If you click on the names of the LM751 crew on the left of the web page you will see that I have taken the individual images and added them to their names.
Lancaster LM751 Stanley Victor Chambers was my husband's father. Could you tell me if the photograph of the crew on your website is available from is available from you.
A fitting tribute. I am embarking on the history of my uncle P/O C.C.Goff of 100 Squadron who was on the Nuremberg raid of 27/28th August '43 and lost with his crew in DV159 on 18/19th Oct '43. He was also trained at Gunter Field.
Intresting site. These stories need to be recorded and retold.
My Dad was Navigator with 207 (EM-F) shot down over france 3rd/4th May '44 returned to UK via French Resistance.
Thanks for the info on the site, very interesting.
You might be interested in looking at www.lancaster-lm658.co.uk, the story of one Lanc from 100 Squadron and the fate of her crew after being brought down over Holland in August 1944.
