I am looking for any members of these squadrons that remember my Uncle, Charles Smith Cook.He was often called "Chick" or because of his boxing,the "brown bomber". My father told me that that sometime between 1940-1943 there was a photo of Charlies' crew and Lancaster printed in an Edinburgh newspaper. They were standing in front of the plane along with the Lord Provost of Edinburgh.I would love to hear from anyone that has memories of my Uncle or any of the families of his fellow crew members listed below. If anyone could be kind enough to find the photo I have mentioned I would be so grateful. I'd like to be able to show it to my father,Charlies' brother.
