Hi Mark
Good to hear from you again - your photo does not seem to have been uploaded. If you want, send it to me on my email address and I will have a try. I have not tried to upload anything since Gary re-launched the site so there may be a problem.

Hope to hear from you

regards

Brian

Sadly he passed away a short while ago.

Hi Mark,
Thanks for your posting - I have had a look in my database for your father and have produced a list of all his missions and fellow crew members. I have attached a spreadsheet - hope it is useful.
If you have any photos or other details about your dads time with 215 squadron I would be interested.

regards
Brian
