David P. Williams is an unknown quantity at this point
23/24.09.43 Lancaster DV 174 460 Sqn.

I am looking for personal information on the crew of Lancaster DV 174 from 460 Sqn which was shot down on the night of 23/24.09.43 during an attack against Mannheim.

The aircraft was piloted by F/S B.A Plant from R.A.A.F. He and his crew perished and were all buried at the Reichswald Forest War Cemetery near Kleve. I missed taking a photograph of the crew's graves when i visited there last May. Does anyone have pictures of the graves, or of the crew when they were stationed at R.A.F Binbrook. Any personal information about any member of the crew would also be very much appreciated. Many thanks in anticipation.
