We recently have been carrying out further searches for more relatives of the Shell family as despite their best efforts a photograph of John Shell couldn't be found from the existing ones we've contacted. It now looks likely that we may have achieved this and we are hoping that we may receive a photo in the next day or so. If this occurrs we will have found a photo of all seven men on the aircraft. A pleasing result. Ref the post above by 'Lofty1' - my good friend is full of praise. But in fact I must throw that back at him. Had it not been for him creating the circumstances of getting people interested in the same subject matter together chatting over a coffee and a bacon sandwich, we would probably would never of heard David (Seaborn) talk of the morning he saw a burning RAF Lancaster fly over where he lived as a boy, using his hands to show the way the aircraft banked away towards the airfield and heard him say just how unlucky the crew were. Often its' only when the right conditions are there and people feel comfortable to talk, that we are priviliged into their memories. No doubt as we progress and what we are doing becomes more known about we will hear of others accounts of what happened that morning. The catalyst however has been David's passionately spoken words, all made possible by Lofty.
