found this on new Zealanders with Bomber Command, which might be helpful.
Cheers,

Thanks for link John, shame the photo's on the bottom of the page do not open though, unless there's something wrong with my system.
There is no paralell in warfare, to such courage and determination in the face of danger, over so long a period. Such devotion, should never be forgotten.

Wayne, it also opened OK for me, could the answer to the problem be one of the following-
a slight touch of extractus digitum or possibly to take more water with it. :)

My father flew with 75 Sqdn. RNZAF and is mentioned in Volume II Chapter 2 Page 16 of the same document. Even though he was only with the Squadron for a SHORT period as indicated in the book due to enemy target practice, There is an error in the description as it shows other members of the crew were POW's but in fact all were killed and are buried in St. Thegonnec France.
