What a wonderful tribute to your uncle Wilf....and the whole family. Very touching.
Tomorrow Ken Moore will be playing the pipes at the Cenotaph in our community and we will be remembering Uncle Wilf who gave his life. We will also think about Ken's dad Ralph Moore, my uncles Tim Ellis, Fen Ellis and Warren Ellis who survived but never forgot.
Nor should we.

this is something not many people do i salute you for your dedication to rememberance. i am an unkmown artist & i am actually painting a watercolour painting of ME320. just moments after take off on their last mission. this is my memorial of rememberance. as i am only 20 mins from RAF Hemswell, from which your uncle took off, i decided to see about using their squadron code in my picture. i found out all of the information before i started the painting. i have drawn the outline & what i wanted to. now, i wait to start. i hope you do not mind me painting ME320??

Well done Paul. This site is a moving tribute to your uncle and the other brave men who lost their lives with him.John Joseph McNally was the Ausie in the crew and my distant cousin. As a young boy I knew his parents well as they lived on my parents property.
John Joseph McNally is remembered on the Tilpa War Memorial as one of those who "Served their country in time of war", and lost their life doing so.

A very moving tribute to a fine crew.May they all rest in peace.
My father Denis Evans served with 170 squadron as a pilot from November 1944 until the end of the war.Upon demobilisation he converted to work as a commercial pilot and enjoyed a career in civil aviation until his retirement logging over 25000 flying hours.He is now 94 and still going strong! He has never forgotten his comrades from 170 squadron and still attends the annual RAF service of remembrance at Runnymede.If there are any photographs of the squadron from that time he would be pleased to see them.

Great site. There is very little out there on 170 Squadron that I have been able to find. My grandfather, William Henry Gibson, was pary of 170 Squadron. Just before he died in 1993 he told me a little of his time in the Lancaster but was other wise tight lipped. I think he was like many upset about some of his missions and of the friends that were lost. I have a large photograph of him, his twin brother and what must be over a hundred other members of the Squadron in front of and sitting on a Lancaster.

Nice site, Paul. To make things easier for you I have the following 1945 addresses for the next of kin of the men you are searching for in your uncle's crew:

Sgt JP Plant: father, Mr PW Plant, St NX Hilary Monks Way, West Kirby, Cheshire

Sgt D Wager: father, Mr H Wager, 59 Athelstan Road, Harold Wood, Essex

There is also an address for a friend of F/Lt Thornton who may still be alive so I will not put it here. You can drop me an email if interested and I will pass it on there

"Their names shall live forever more."
Your Uncle and those like my Dad deserve all our thanks and thoughts for the lives we live today.
Dad, Eric Ranger Jarman DFC lived to be 88 and he and I shared many wonderful times in the last few years of his life where he shared a few of his war experiences.
His (he was a pilot) crew were one of those who formed the 170 Squadron from the 625.
Good luck with your search and may the families of those who served with your uncle find some peace with your website.
