'This photograph was taken by Halifax ZA-X BB324 of 10 Squadron. On 21/22 June 1943 it carried out a raid on Krefeld. My dad was the bomb aimer and the photo was taken automatically on bomb release. The aircraft returned safely to base. Dad and the rest of the crew were then stood down for a few days. This aircraft failed to return the following night from Mulheim with a different crew. The pilot was Sgt Pinkerton. A few years ago I got in touch with his nephew in Canada.'
