576 Squadron WW2 Losses Index

As an aid to navigation of the site Profiles Section I have produced a summary of the losses of 576 Sqn during WW2. This list is an index in date order and complimentary to the Flip Book editions of the Roll of Honour in the Resources Section here which are much more comprehensive. The losses create significant interest and visitor numbers so it is worth the effort. Those with completed Profiles are shown as links and can be accessed by clicking on that item.

I will work through these steadily and in a a few weeks all will be updated. All contributions to this section will be welcome but I can manage very well with what I already have on file. I have had a significant amount of assistance with these already over many years from numerous contacts for which I am most grateful. 11th March 2019
