I am once again indebted to Duncan Campbell for the photo below. It shows the Nelson Bay War Memorial in New South Wales, Australia. On this day we remember the Antipodean members of Lancaster ED559 lost on March 4/5 1943.
F/O Harry Riding - Wireless Operator — RAAF 403699 (age 25) of West Maitland, New South Wales, Australia
F/O Errol C. Crapp - Navigator — RAAF 411113 (age 24) of Singleton, New South Wales, Australia
Sgt Garnet W. Durdin - Rear Gunner — RAAF 416149 (age 25) of Strathalbyn, South Australia.
Lest We Forget
As and when information is found I'll post to this blog.
