Re: 5 LFS Syerston

Haha ... thanks chaps yes that was the one ... I have some interesting pics of a prang it had on that date and thought it might be in the losses book. According to an online source Lancaster R5668 first went to 106 and 207 Squadrons and then DBU, 1661CU and then to 5LFS It became 4901M 4STT whatever...

5 LFS Syerston

Any kind soul got to hand a copy of the Chorley OTU losses book and could look up one for the above unit on the 17/2/1944

Lancaster in question was R 566? CE -O

Re: RAF Medal Card info required.

Hi Paul there is a way if you send those details to the link below with confirmation of his death ( attach a CWGC Certificate PDF )

DBSRES-Secretariat@mod.gov.uk

Wait a few weeks and they should confirm his medal entitlement.

Re: The sad demise of the forums

Just catching up on posts and can only echo the comments made I too find it more and more difficult these days to keep popping into the forum as much and should do better !! there are always a great bunch of people willing to help out with enquiries :) and I only hope that this forum stands the test...

101 Squadron Annual Reunion and service will take place on the weekend of the 9th & 10th June this year with the Lancaster hopefully providing a suitable flypast on the Sunday for the Squadron's 101st anniversary and the 75th anniversary of the movement to Ludford Magna of 101 Squadron on 15th June ...

On another note there used to be a chap on the LAF a few years ago who was into 166 Sqdn ... but I can not remember his name :( :( and so going to find it difficult to track him down lol
