One of the lads who did not return......my Grandfather, Flying Officer Samual Lee, Lancaster Observer/pilot, 15 Squadron (RAF Mildenhall), Bomber Command, volunteered Sept 39' went through the ranks ended up Flying Officer, did all his official tours, on the 20th December 1944 he volunteered to replace a rear gunner who fell ill, mission over the Ruhr......his plane was hit by flack (fully laden !) no remains...just his name on the RAF Runnymead memorial. One of the many who now have a rightful memorial. I named my son after him.......that was my way of making sure he was always in our thoughts.
Cheers ! Steve.
