190 Squadron crew fate ?

Post by smudgersmith218 »


Just started some research into the following crew, I am aware of what happened to the skipper, but interested in the remaining crew, 38 Group is not my area of research. Can anyone with a interest in 190 Squadron confirm if the crew survived their time with 190 Squadron, and where they were posted?
