    Sorry, I hadn’t asked your permission to include your photos in the new version of the site – but I assume this is your blessing. Thank you so much for all the photos you have contributed – I will link to your site on the front page.

  2. Hi,
    I set up a commemoration in May 2005 regarding the crash of Lancaster PD221 of 550 squadron RAF in Westerbeek, 3rd Febr. 1945.

    How can I place photo’s on this site ?


  3. Email your photos to 550squadron [at] and I’ll put them up! Any more photographs from others are appreciated.
