    Hello guys. I'm trying to research my great uncle Sgt Andrew McLaughlin who was KIA on 3/10/43 over Kessel. He was the wireless operator on EE901 which i believe was a Stirling aircraft.
    Very few details are available to me so i thought I'd give this a try, and hope to contact any other family of servicemen aboard.
    Thanks again, Richard.
