Dear 408 Sqn Association

I am a Medical Officer in the RAF. My grandmother's half brother was an Englishman called Jack Crammond. He was a Sergeant and was killed on the night of 30-31 Jul 1943 in a Halifax II serial JD365. He was with 408 Sqn. They took off from RAF Leeming. The raid was on Remscheid and apparently caused huge destruction. The aircraft crashed near Düren.

His name is recorded on the Runnymede Memorial.

I was wondering if the association had any records of this aircraft and its crew? Was everyone lost, or did some survive?

Due to the complexities of families it seems little is known about this. I'm told his wife waited for years in case he came home. Some did after being released from PoW camps.

Any information would be gratefully received.

Many thanks for your work in keeping the association going.

Sqn Ldr Alex Blacklock
