    Hi there Little Friend- I happened to come across your photos of this memorial today -thanks for taking the time to post. My father was Flt Sgt Don Bolingbroke (note spelling)- crew of JB560 at very bottom right. He survived his injuries was promoted to Flt Lt and saw the war out in of all places - Aircrash investigations (PTSD wasn't considered back then I guess). He returned to Australia after the war - hence the reason I am here to send you a message. He lived until 87 (passing away almost 10 years ago - 17/12 - the anniversary of the crash. I would be very interested to know the exact location of the memorial so I can visit some time when I am in England again.
    Kind Regards Andrew Bolingbroke, Adelaide South Australia
