Also lost on the same operation from 467 Squadron.
F/O Charles "Chic" Cameron, W/C Eric Langlois, F/O Alan "Nugget" Reid, Sgt John "Scotty" Scott and F/O Evan "Pat" Patten. Shown with their surviving mates, both POW's from earlier raids. F/O Lloyd Baines (2nd from right back row) and F/Lt Charley "Champ" Ellis (front left).

Our thoughts and prayers are continually with you. You were remembered at the 467/463 AGM last month.

Sorry Kerry, I should have included Eric and his crew. Also lost on the same operation were the crews of Bobby Eggins (467) and Frank Howells (463). RIP all those lads.
