Wanted Foster

Frederick Albert foster maakte deel uit van de crew die op 24 april 1944 uitvloog met als doel Karlsruhe, West Duitsland.
In het terugkeren naar de thuisbasis van het 115e squadron in Witchford werd de Lancaster bommenwerper van de Flight Sergeant – Navigator – onderschept door een Duitse Messerschmitt in België.

Op 25 april om 2u28 werd de bommenwerper beschoten 3 km ten noorden van Mechelen. Alle zeven bemanningsleden kwamen om het leven.

We ontbreken nog een foto van hem om de crew te vervolledigen.

Onderzoek bracht aan het licht dat Albert Ernest Foster en Annie Dorothy Foster (meisjesnaam Adcock) zijn ouders waren.
Hun adres in 1944 was Alma Place, Thornton Heath. Behalve zoon Frederick had het gezin nog vijf dochters: Phyllis, Dorothy, Beryl, Edna and Evelyn.
Beryl huwde met Harry Ward in 1951 en had twee zonen, Martin en Christopher.

Frederick Albert Foster was part of a devastating night sortie on April 24, 1944, which involved 637 aircraft bombing the transportation system at Karlsruhe, West Germany.
But as the Lancaster bomber the Flight-Sergeant – Navigator – was in flew back to the Witchford home base of the 115th Squadron it was involved in a dogfight with German Messerschmitts over Belgium.

At 2.28am on the morning of April 25 it was shot down 3km north of Mechelen, northern Belgium, and all seven crew were killed.

We are just missing one photo of Foster to make the crew complete.

The research we have done so far has revealed Mr Foster’s parents were Albert Ernest Foster and Annie Dorothy Foster, whose maiden name was Adcock.
Their address in 1944 was Alma Place, Thornton Heath.
As well as their son Frederick they had five daughters Phyllis, Dorothy, Beryl, Edna and Evelyn.
Beryl married a man called Harry Ward in 1951 and had two sons, Martin and Christopher.
