We believe that the R (top left name) is Roy Gould and he is pictured at the wedding of Sgt Bramley (his F/E)...see below (far right).

Some clever technical work by our President, John Ward, has produced this image of an Avro Manchester Mk 1A L7493 EA- F for Freddie.
This aircraft is of interest because it is the very Manchester that the Gould crew flew to Wlihelshaven on the night of 14th Sept 42, well after the squadron had ceased operating the type.
Being a Sgt pilot, we suspect he didn't have much choice in the matter.....although he had already flown Hampdens and Manchesters on ops earlier in his tour.
