This photograph is of the crew of pilot Alan May who served in the squadron in Full Sutton and India. His daughter is Van Wilson, the Association’s long-serving, dedicated Treasurer, Membership Secretary and now also Editor of the Nickel. Alan and his crew survived the war but tragically he was killed in an air accident just before Van was born. She would love to trace any family members of the crew who flew with her father.
