I had Sgt Thomas with me for a trip to Le Harve on 19 August and to Dusseldorf on the 24th. Ground defences were moderate and appear to have been overwhelmed as the attack progressed. Michael, I'm sure your are right that Ronald was known as Stan or Stanley, there are several other cases in earlier generations of my family who went by their middle names or had even adopted other names which can make for confusing research. You'll find the palce chock full of useful information and friendly folk willing to share. The trouble came back and we lost our intercom altogether. It was decided to fly down country hoping the engine would clear.

In fact we had trouble with the aircraft which made us quite late to take off. Sgt McColl was my 2nd Pilot on a trip to Rotterdam in January, 1942. We had a number of losses and a number landed else where. As a result of this farcas, the only injuries among the crew were a few bruises.

If I am wrong at least this message will give you a sense of the 'time' your father was flying on Ops. This was the only occasion when I was able to stand upright and walk out of a rear turret. He was a great character and a pleasure to serve. Between then and 16 August we had no operations but I had four Air Tests in preparation, two with Sgt Beardmore as 2nd Pilot and one with Sgt Thomas. By the time we reached Lincoln, we had been fired on three times by our own anti-aircraft. In the meantime, welcome to the forum. On that night I went to Essen with Sgt Lunan as my 2nd Pilot.

But, of course, I had no idea Ronald was a pilot. I've just recently learned that my sister has received on loan a box full of his memorabilia, which I am anxious to go see in the near future. On 29 September the same team went to Stettin again. I regret I have no photograph of Ronald. I am pleased you were able to learn he was a pilot. You can imagine what happened when we came into contact with the ditches. On the 29th of August another Sgt Jones flew as second pilot with me to Frankfurt.

Life on the Squadron of course was not always flying True, we worked hard during Moon Periods but meterological problems gave us a number of days off when we had to be satisfied by doing an air test but our evenings were our own. My Grandmother died in 2006 and then my own father in 2008, so I am now feel I am the member of the family who needs to keep the memories of my Grandfather alive. At this time we were at Middleton St George. Shot down by a night-fighter He 219? I've been away from the originals for so long now, I have forgotten which is which. My crew checked the position which appeared to tie up with the relationship with the flashing beacon. Memorial: Ronald Green was my late father's second cousin. I have a copy of the sqdn's operational records on microfilm, much of which I have transcribed.

She has already sent me a scan of a long letter that he wrote to a young poltician named John Deifenbaker, whom he had met just prior to heading overseas. You can do so by clicking on his user name in one of the above posts. George, Mount Pleasant or Sharjah - or are related to someone that did and are interested in attending, please contact me for further information. Reports of weather conditions vary, some aircraft having encountered no cloud and others some broken cloud up to 10,000 feet, Visibility was good, but there was some haze and heavy clouds of smoke hampered identification of ground detail and observation results. Once again, my many thanks, Chris. If anyone can help with any info at all I would be most greatful.

I guess all of the mixed feelings that a 25 yr old would feel in that situation. Two aircraft squadron aircraft were reported as missing, Michael, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, Robfoale has not been on the forum since the one post he made earlier. The entire crew was apparently lost. His flying career with 'Preston's Own' was brief typical and intense and again some very hard targets. Judging by your comments, even if Ronald Stanley had not been in this crash, you wonder if he would have survived his tour at this stage of the war. Sgt Hockley was with me on two occasions.

Czujemy się niezręcznie Wygląda na to, że korzystasz z przeglądarki, której nie obsługujemy. Thanks for the tip-off on Geoff's 1939-1947 Search Engine. . Usually only a family name rank and trades are shown in the postings and some of these are missing in my records. I am interested in receiving more information about the 78 Sqn event and am sure that my Grandfather would love to attend. Unhappily, he failed to return from a trip which was in early 1942.
