My late father was on a run over St.Saire in France to drop bombs on a V1 site? His pilot was Ramond Rosen. I cant really remember the other crew members names apart from my late father, Sgt Andrew (Jock) Mckinnon. Here is the photo painted by his wireless op or so I remember.
I was thinking of going over to St.Saire to find the spot the aircraft came down on, I did hear there was a monument to the crew on the site.
cannot identify the serial number from the painting? however information below regarding your fathers crew:-
