Hi, just found this site so sorry this has taken so long.Hi, "Moonlight Mermaid" was a Halifax Mk. VII serial number NP689. She did 80+ operations before being shotdown on Mar. 15, 1945 to Hagen.
I was an honourary member of the 432 Squadron Association and knew many of the 432 Squadron boys, including Johnny Bright, an engineer who worked on and cared for Moonlight Mermaid.
Sadly, most of them passed on now.
We have some good photos of Moonlight Mermaid at the Bomber Command Museum of Canada, in case you are interested.
A VERY good friend of mine, Ian Duncan also was an airframe type on 432 and was assigned to Moonlight Mermaid. He told me many times of his feelings when the aircraft went missing, specially for his friend who was the tail gunner. He had many pictures of this aircraft which I believe his daughter no has.
He passed away a few years ago after many years retired from the helicopter industry here in BC.
