In your Book of Remembrance for the 13th June 1944 you have listed 6 members of the crew of Lancaster EQ-Y who are buried in the Forenville Military Cemetery near Cambrai in Northern France. They appear to have been part of a raid on the Cambrai area and were not the only crew lost. Did anyone from this crew survive? as I guess a Lancaster crew would be at least 7 normally. This cemetery at Forenville is small, in a lovely rural setting, and is beautifully maintained. It is, in the main, a World War 1 cemetery of just over 100 men and these 6 airmen are the only WW2 casualties in there. My reason for contacting you relates to the fact that the majority of those buried there (including my grandfather) were killed in action on the 8th October 1918. I am organising a small commemorative centenary event at Forenville on the 8th October 2018 and have contacted the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the local Mayors office. Things are very much at an initial stage with more than two years to go, but I wanted any descendants or family of these 6 Canadians to be aware of the event. Although our focus will be on the centenary of the WW1 loses - you can be assured that we will observe fitting remembrance of these 6 men as well. I can be reached at the email address I have appended to this entry.
