Message from Richard Ashby

Amongst my uncle Peter Sells' things I have found a membership card for the Aircrew Association Number SE11073.

Peter Sells died on 30th August 2012 at home in Hitchin.

He had been a wireless operator/gunner on Lancaster bombers of 207 squadron and on his first scheduled operation had been involved in the famous incident at RAF Spilsby (1 November 1944) where his Lancaster had veered on takeoff, crashed, caught fire and destroyed three Halifax bombers and some of the airfield buildings.
