Unbelievable! After five years and numerous appeals and newspaper articles, I have traced the Mallon crew's mid-upper gunner, Don Cook. After spending so much time searching in London, I eventually discovered that he and his wife Susan had moved to Suffolk in 1980. Sadly, Don died in February 2000 at the age of 75 but, as well as Susan, Don has a nephew and niece, who live in Canada.
I should now be able to write the final chapter here, on the blog, and eventually up-date the book. What is remarkable about Don's story so far is the continuing tragic theme that seems to have run through the whole story of 'The Mallon Crew!
