Although a little late in the development of this website dedicated to the memory of the crew of ED627, I have added this page for any further information about them that may be of interest but does not relate to other pages on this site.

These photographs were taken when the crew were first reburied in the Durnbach War Cemetery in 1947/9?. The names on the board does not include PO. Fitzgerald. I believe because he was buried in his own grave next to the communal grave of his crew. The headstones on the crew's graves are laid in alphabetical order and not necessarily where their bodies are laid.




The photo shows the three medals that all of the crew of Lancaster ED627 are entitled too.

They are, left to right....

PO. Arthur Marcus Fitzgerald

Here are some other documents and information belonging to PO. Fitzgerald.

 There is a RAF Christmas card to his parents sent from RAF South Cerney in Gloucester. 

An introduction booklet describing the USAAF base at Gunter Field in Alabama, USA for the cadets. This airfield was the home of the Army Airforce Basic flying School and trained many RAF personnel to become pilots probably for many different Squadrons.

Also included are some aircraft recognition documents of American aircraft along with a Graduating card from Army Airforce Advanced Flying School at Craig Field and a photo of BT13's flying in formation. The BT13's were probably the aircraft that the student pilot's learnt to fly on.

These documents were brought back from the USA by Arthur.
