    Hi my name is Braham and as a new member i would firstly like to sincerely thank the members who researched and provided the indepth details on the service life of my uncle P/O Braham Raises MIA 10/12/42. I know this is unlikely but would any members know of anywhere to contact where it may be possible to obtain a photograph of him ( i am last surviving member of family and have nothing).He flew briefly with RAF 54 squadron, then mainly with 127 and finally with 601 Squadron. Thank you
