I am researching the loss of 44 Sqn Lancaster ME628 which was shot down while attacking the V1 site at Pommerval on 24 June 1944. I am particularly looking for a photograph of the pilot, Flt Sgt Roy Oswald and/or any of his crew. I would also like to make contact with any relatives of the crew who may still be around. The other members were:

Sgt J A Hurley, WO2 A R Shoebottom RCAF, FlLt Sgt T W White, WO A J Richardson, Sgt L J H Hutchinson, Sgt R H Sargent. Hurley, Shoebottom and White survived, the rest of the crew sadly did not.

Thanks in anticipation.

Many thanks; I have been trying to track down a 44 Squadron association.
