Hello, my name is Matthew Fletcher, Sgt. Fletcher.J.M (John Mcgibbon) from Liverpool was my late Grandfathers brother, i believe he was the only RAF crew member on the aircraft KH256 along with his Canadian fellows. My grandad said that John had volunteered for this mission?
John served as a tail gunner on Wellingtons earlier in the war in North Africa.
I only really know what i know from this site and the little my grandad knew. I have My great uncle Johns medals that were received by the family post war and a cloth Sgt stripe from his effects that were sent back to the family. My Dad has some pictures of John, several with groups of his pals and fellow crewmen. I will have to get some photographed so i can upload them for your perusal. At least it will put another face to a name.
Best wishes, Mat
