Tommy Graham .. Jack Watson .. Jimmy Horne .. Bob Winfield .. Don Chick .. George Landridge and Harry Goldberg while training at RAF Winthorpe .. Dec 1943. Lancaster GP-W ED437
Crew tragically lost on Operations (20th Op) 27th April 1944......

Looking for any 1661 HCU Halifax photos. Were the Halifax codes at 1661 also GP during this time? Specifically looking for any information on Halifax "F" during Dec 1943.

Thanks,
