The following shows the composition of his crew on these sorties, along with the number of sorties undertaken by each airman as part of his crew (as recorded in the squadron’s Operations Record Book). Details of all flights (including training flights) will be recorded in their Flying Log Books:

(Pilot)Timothy Devenish Lamb14
(Navigator)L Fawcett14
(Air Bomber)JG Winship14
(Set Operator)George William Bartlett1
(Wireless Operator)AD Hill14
(Air Gunner)J Tiffin1
Jeremiah Anthony Hanafin14
Leslie Arthur Booth1

RH Cole1
Frank Walter Vilain1
(Flight Engineer)AS Tuck14

It is known that some (or all) of these airmen continued to fly operationally with the squadron during the post war clean up, which included repatriation of POW and service personnel, Cooks Tours, testing of German radar and disposal of surplus incendiaries. However, the squadron’s record book only provides a summary of these activities and does not list the individual captains and crews that took part in these sorties.
