Share this article

"I wonder if any readers can help locate the family of an airman who was a member of my uncle's crew when their Lancaster Bomber was shot down over France on May 4, 1944," writes Jennifer Graham, from West Yorkshire.

"The airman was Leonard Charles Margetts, aged 27, who was survived by his wife Frances Christine Margetts, of 17 Melville Terrace, Edinburgh.

"I've been to see his grave, and attended a memorial service at Mailly Le Camp where the target was, and would like to pass on photos and other details to Mr Margetts' family."
