  1. Hi Steven, just trawling through some old emails and came across one you sent to me a couple of years ago. It was in relation to an uncle of mine who lost his life in a Lancaster over Normandy in 1944. Not sure if it was you who sent through the photos of the Quetteville Cemetery of his grave, along with the other airman who also perished. An update to that is that I am planning on travelling to Jack Taylor’s grave in Quetteville next year to scatter my father’s ashes on his grave. They were such good mates and I know dad wasa devastated when Jack didn’t return from the war. Would like to re-establish contact to see if there is any other information you might have that would be of interest. Regards, Colin Taylor

    • Good afternoon,

      Thanks for the information. It was me who told them about it; they had previously used the erroneous RAF Historical Branch data, which I have also corrected.

      Best regards,


  3. Hi,
    I came across your site by complete fluke. Norman was my great Uncle. I am looking forward to purchasing the book and hearing the story of this crew.
