2061910 Terence Francis George LOVELL of the 1st Airborne Division Workshop REME, he landed at Arnhem on the 18th and gets a few mentions in "With Spanners Descending", he made it back safely over the Rhine. If anyone else has any other information on him I'm interested or if he gets a mention in any other books.

3532633 J M Thickett of 2nd Airlanding Anti-tank artillery who was taken POW at Arnhem - I'm hoping someone can narrow down which crew he was with and which gun he was on
