The Crew of Lancaster Bomber ME320
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. Listed in order of their photos above:
- Wilfred Weber
- John McNally
- Cecil Ebbs
- Wilbert Brydon
- Donald Wager
- John Plant
- Edward Thornton (no photo yet)
My goal is to find living relatives of all crew members and let them know of this site. To date I've found five of the six.
Please sign my guest book if you visit the site and read the news page for updates.
A special thank you to the British artist Simon Smith, who has allowed me to use one of his great paintings as the banner for this site. The above work is titled, "Mission Completed". It depicts the morning after a gruelling operation during the autumn of 1944.
