I've come into this discussion over 2 months after the original post about the night of 12th October 1944 when 6 x 31 & 34 SAAF crews were missing but the wrecks of 5 planes were found .
My father was F/O T R Millar RAAF of Liberator KH158, which is still missing .[Sgt RC Fitzgerald RAF was the rear gunner]
Last year on 15th May 2011 we placed a marble memorial plaque to the crew of KH158, in the area of their drop zone "Morris", by an old partisan house, high in the Ligurian mountains Italy . The event was attended by officials from the Embassies of Britain and Australia in Rome and the Honorary South African Consul in Genoa plus Italian officials and local people.
The search still goes on for KH158 .
Small pieces of some of the crashed planes are still emerging when the snows melt in the mountains and soften the ground . http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.anc ... lartrm.htm
