Rod,Sorry for not printing in my e-mail -- firstname.lastname@example.org -- I am Rod Butson, the author of the book, Pride of the Porcupines 433 Sqdn. RCAF by Roderick L. Butson (2001)-- my book has listings of all Ops,all aircraft, all the crews on Ops, some photos from that era, which were graciously lent to me from veterans of that squadron -- I was in contact with Wing Commander A.J. Lewington and many more pilots and aircrew who did the Ops over enemy territory -- If you need info -- contact me by e-mail -- I am sorry but my book is out of print -- but I can usually help if questions are about 433 Porcupine Squadron.
Could you please provide me with some details to enable me to purchase a copy of this book.
Publisher and ISBN code would be very helpful.
My Uncle, Ernest Osborne RAF served in 433 squadron. He flew as an Air Gunner in Halifax BM H, LV841 and was lost on the 25th March 1944. His pilot was P.O Lossing RCAF
I have electronic photos of my uncle, 1 posed in uniform, 1 in full flying gear and several of his training unit.
I'm looking to identify where my uncles Halifax came down, homebound, presumed crippled by Flak, crashed in open countryside 5 km N of Sandersleben, 5 km NE of Hettstedt.
