On March 5th, 1945, in the last few weeks of World War II,  the Lancaster bomber which carried my uncle Wilfred Earl Weber crashed over Chemnitz, Germany. All seven crew members lost their lives. My uncle was 23 at the time. Some crew members were as young as 19.
This site is dedicated to my uncle and the men who flew with him--they gave their lives in defence of ours.

Canadian comic Rick Mercer goes up in a Lancaster at the Hamilton Warplane Museum.


Help me find this family in England.

Wager Family
Donald Wager was on my uncle’s plane. Photo of the Wager family, date unknown. Left to right: Donald, Father, Mother, Geoffrey Margaret, Peter, and Joyce. Family was from Harold Wood, Essex. I’d guess this photo was taken in the mid-1930s.
