View Full Version : Lancaster PB 345 Mosbach

2nd Feb 2012, 14:25
I am researching the crash of Lancaster PB345 on 25.8.44 and have access to some good research carried out in the 1980s by a man from Dagenham called John Farley. I would like to know if anyone has done any research into this crash in mosbach Germany to see if I can add to the information I already have. I have contacted one John Farley and it is not the correct one and am aware another died a few years ago but I do not think it was him either. The John Farley who carried out the research visited Germany with one of the crew members Vic Cuttle (who I am preety sure is no longer alive)
Can anyone help me at all. please get in touch.

Sorry you have had no replies Molly.

I imagine you have tried the RAF records held at Kew?
