    Seeking records about crew of Lancaster PA-995

    Paul Batenburg Newbie

      The crew of the Lancaster PA-995 flight on March 7, 1945 flew the last and 101st mission of that plane. Take off from Killingholme-North destination Dessau, Germany. The plane was shot down and crashed on March 7, 1945 at 21.30 hours above Germany and all 7 crew members bailed out. Three of them did not survive: Jones (pilot) Buckmaster (navigator) and Harvey (airbomber), all 3 Canadians. The other 4 members, English nationality as far as I know, managed to tell their stories. The names are: Webb, Flight Engineer; Main, Radio Operator; Pelham, Centre Gunner; and Smith, Tail Gunner.  All this is documented. See:

There are a lot of open questions so i am looking for more information such as relatives, flight information and crash location information.
