Edward J. Brennan RAF

T/Sgt Edward J. Brennan (Radio Op/Gunner) was shot down (at 26 year age) with his B-26 Marauder Serial Nr. 43-34562 - 394 BG / 394 BS - 9th BD on 21st Feb 1945 over Holland. Five of the crew were killed and three survived. Brennan and his 4 comrades are buried at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery - Louisville Kentucky USA. Before he joined the USAAF he served within the RAF. He had an almost complete career with the RAF. His relatives however don’t know anything about his former life within the RAF. He originally came from Bermuda but lived at Suncook – New Hampshire USA when he served with the USAAF he was married to Mrs. Gloria G. Brennan.
Attached a photograph of Edward with the RAF as he was trained for active service with Bomber Command. We even don’t know in which squadron(s) he served. What we know is that he made about 26 missions to Europe/Germany but he had luck in those days and was never shot down. His family is interested in the first part of Edwards flying career. Is there anyone who could help ? Maybe someone recognizes somebody or the building on the picture ?
