Lancaster R5696, 97 Squadron, Woodhall Spa. shot down 11 Jul 1942
Permalink   


Hi all,  This is my first posting here.  Along with another relative of one of the crewmembers, we are researching Lancaster R5696 97 Squadron RAFVR,  My father's cousin John Forsyth Service number 1007363 Sgt/Pilot RAFVR, was co-pilot on the mission when shot down over Danzig 11 Jul 1942.  The Pilot was Fl/Lt Charles W Miller DFC RAVFR, a New Zealander. maybe a long shot, but perhaps someone has a photo of the full crew, or possibly the Lancaster.

Thank You in advance

Dave Forsyth

Hello Dave,
I have been researching this daily operation over Danzig (Gdansk nowadays) in Poland. As I live in this city I am going to write an article about it.
Unfortunately I do not have any photographs of the crew.
However I would suggest you to take a look at this website:
http://aircrewremembered.com/miller-charles.html for more details of the loss of Lancaster R5696 OF-H of 97 Sqn.
I would appreciate if you could provide more details of this mission.

Regards,
Greg

If anybody is doing a study of Canadian Evaders, this dossier is available since the group has, essentially, dissolved.

Dear all, we are doing quite a lot of research. The crew are indentified and there is a small memorial on the crash site. We are looking to erect a larger monument within a reasonable time. Please get in touch for further information:   adam@gosiewski.net
