The Callsing is incorrect. instead AA-P it should be JN-P. The Lancaster RA564 with onboard the Barr crew was part of the "C-flight" of the 75(NZ)Sqd RAF.

He was deaf in one ear, and almost blind in one

Beste Jaap, Mooi document over de oorlogsgeschiedenis van Mirns! Maar ik kan nog wat aanvullen over de steen die al jaren bij het kerkhof staat...
