We are in contact with his son Ian and other family members and we have a number of amazing photo's to share with everyone.
Charles (Chuck) Warner - Pilot
Sid Love (Canadian who joined RAF) - Navigator
Arthur Adcock - WOp
John (Jock) (Higgy) Higgins - Mid-Upper Gunner
Edwin (Yorkie) Moore - Rear Gunner
John (Taffy) James - Flight Engineer - (Joined them later)
Ken Ratcliffe - Navigator/Bomb Aimer.
Edwin (Yorkie) Moore is the only surviving crew member. He lives still lives in Yorkshire.
After Lossiemouth they were posted to Riccall (Yorkshire) to convert to Halifax MK III Bombers.
They were posted to 102 Squadron late October 1944 and flew on missions to Sterkrade, Essen and Duisberg.
On a mission to Essen on Nov 29th they were forced to bring a 2000lb bomb back home but managed to land safely.
The following photo's are taken some time during the crews time together, but we are not sure when.
They do NOT enlarge.
After 102 Squadron they were posted to 171 Squadron North Creake (Norfolk) in January 1945.
In all they flew about 40 missions over Germany.
The crew stayed together until the end of the war and kept in touch for the rest of their lives.
You can see here an extract from the Yorkshire Post, which I (webmaster) am sure I am going to get into trouble for using.. but hey.. what they going to do.. jail me??? The article says it all really.
