24 Nov 1943, John Stanton, age 21, RAF(VR) 7th Squadron

On short notice John filled in for a flight engineer on another Lancaster bomber crew (JB 480). He'd already flown two missions in the previous four days with his regular crew on "Queenie" (JA 962). JB 480 went missing over the North Sea returning from Berlin.

Mechanically minded, John loved working with his hands. He enjoyed inviting others to eat out - he always picked up the tab.

Sgt Arthur John Stanton, service #1604584

Lest we forget.
