New Memorial to be unveiled in The Netherlands. (Lancaster Aircrew Memorial)

The Aircrew Remembrance Society has been cooperating with Dutch Historian Jaap Geenson for many years. In 2014 our chairman David King was able to identify items recovered by Jaap on the Dutch coast line, as coming from a Lancaster aircraft. A memorial to the crew of this Lancaster II, LL720 408 Sqdn, will now be unveiled on the 9th November 2019. The relatives of two of the crew members have been located, those of F/O J. Bonneville, RCAF and  P/O E. Dramnitzki, RCAF. The search continues for relatives of the other five. Please contact the site if you are in contact in anyway with anyone related to this crew, or have any information that you feel may help in tracing them.
