    Generally the missions shown in that list agree with my fathers log book and also with Bob Adams log book. However there is an error regarding the Moerdijk and Wartet operations. The Moerdijk op took place on 16 September 1944. I also think that Wartet was never a destination in their bombing ops. Having said that, I believe that my father participated in one or two secret ops that were possibly not logged eg. refer my fathers notes in http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/57121-raf-90-squadron-lancaster-mk3-wp-a-identification/#entry664693 .

    I guess there is a slight possibilty that Shep may have conducted a secret mission to Wartet at some time. For correct log book entries on those September 44 dates see the last photo of the log book entry (at that link).

    I have a fantastic picture of a Lancaster flying over the fens of the Netherlands in winter. This was gifted to me by some wonderful Dutch friends during a trip to Oosterhout to visit my late fathers grave. I would love to share this picture with people on this forum, but I can't seem to fathom out how to upload it onto this site. Can anyone out there enlighten me please?!!

    I also wonder if anyone has any photos of 9 squadron, flying out of Waddington? My father was a navigator on Lancaster ED 347. This plane was shot down over the Netherlands on 20th Dec 1942 with the loss of all the crew. A photo of the plane would be wonderful, a photo of the crew would be truly fantastic. Thank you.

    The 4th photo above (with the crew standing by the aircraft) is not a Lancaster. Wrong engine and cowling.

    i think 'just jane' was at biggin hill airshow in 1967. we were air cadets sleeping in a tent there. i remember it was pissing down and 3 of us climbed aboard and had a 'play' :) no guns in it but the rear turret would crank round!
