Hello Barry, what an amazing find!!
my maiden name is kathleen Nesbitt. My father, ASB Nesbitt, was EHM Nesbitt’s younger brother, also in the RAF during WW2. I visited my uncle Hugh’s grave near Hanover 10 years ago, & I have photographs of his last resting place, as well as some of him in old family photos.

Just come across photos of Eric nesbitt in uniform and reams of family documents in a “junk” shop in Norwich if anyone from nesbitt family is interested. Wealth of old photos and family trees that have been thrown out. Very sad but if anyone from the family is interested it’s fascinating.

I am trying to help his daughter (who is ill). who simply does not know, I would be very grateful, thank you Chris.

Even after 72+ years I can still hear the sound of the airmines which travelled above me. I know my query is very late but the experience not forgotten (I was then 13 years of age). A reply, one way or the other would be appreciated.
