    Tonight going in to tomorrow will be the 74th anniversary ( If you can call it that ?) of the RAFs worst ever loss of Men and Machine's. I wonder if there are going to be any remembrance service's at any of the old airfields, or at the Bomber Command Memorial in London. I know a lady who's father was on this raid in a Lancaster. He was a Navigator, somewhere over France they were attacked while on their way home, the crew were ordered to bale-out and he landed in a garden and hid in a shed. He was there for a couple of weeks living off carrots he pulled from the garden, and anything the owners could spare. Eventually he was reported by some Quisling and carted off to a P.O.W. Camp. But at least he survived.
    RIP to all those who lost their lives that night 74 years ago from later tonight and onwards...
