97 Squadron Losses on D-Day

This morning I posted the details on the RAF Pathfinders Archive of the loss of the Commanding Officer of 97 Squadron, Wing Commander Carter, and the crew of a Norwegian pilot Lieutenant Jespersen.

Whilst there were other Pathfinder casualties on that day, for me these two crews are amongst the most memorable, especially on this 75th Anniversary of D-Day.
