    I just wanted to add a slight update. See Post #140 on page 4 (on my computer) of this thread. I had posted a link to a video created by Paul Kightley, in which he reviews his father's RAF 355 Squadron service.

Very well-done, and made with great respect for his father, one of the two survivors of the B-24 Liberator ditching in the Bay of Bengal which took the life of the only Fighter Command Victoria Cross recipient of the war, James Nicolson.
