Black Thursday crews

The 21 crews who flew on Black Thursday have now all had pages set up for them, although there is some information left to transfer, particularly on the Smith, Deverill and Thackway crews.

The Riches crew page has been updated and pages for the Snell crew and the Brill crew have also been added (all links below).

The Brill crew were the only 97 Squadron crew shot down that night; they were hit by flak over Berlin, the aircraft broke up, and all lost their lives. After the war they were the subject of a detailed Missing Research and Enquiry report, but only four of the eight-man crew were ever identified.
