The S/Ldr Nicholas crew completed their operational tour Jan 1944 - July 1944. During that same period S/Ldr Nicholas was Commanding Officer "A" Flight.

If you look closely at the photographs you might recognise the W/Op, in later years, as Bob Todd the straight-man to Benny Hill (UK TV comedy star in 1960s-1980s).
