There is a gallery with photos from throughout the history of the squadron – portraits, crews, planes, reunions and so on. If you have anything to contribute, either comment or email. Names, titles, details, places, exact dates and so on would all be appreciated.

If you have higher resolution replacement photographs than any on this site, please send them in.

  3. Looking since a longer time for Mr Gary Barratt, relative of Sgt. Wilfred Barratt, Lancaster ND425. The aircraft was shotdown very close to my hometown. Some weeks agay the daughter of the reargunner has visitied the crash place and the cemetery where the crew was buried first.

    Do you have any photos of Norman Dennis Holdsworth. He was my grandfather and piloted around 20 missions during June and July 1944 for 550 squadron. He was known as Dennis and flew with a navigator called RIP Kirby. He was awarded the DFC and there was mention of a citation which I’d like to find out more about. We have his log book and medal but would like to know any more information if you have any.
