Do you know anything about a John Rowland Cuthbert who died in the Second World War, and was from High Kelling, near Holt?
The flight engineer, who served in 576 Squadron, died aged 23 when his Lancaster bomber crashed on July 29, 1944.
The crew are buried in Chamousey communal cemetery in Vosges, France.
Patrick Kearney, the son of one of the men, Sgt John Kearney, and a friend in France plan to make commemorative plaques to put on the graves and at the crash site.
He said: 'His parents were John and Annie Cuthbert (née Smith). Villagers have built a shrine to the memory of the crew at the crash site. We would like to include photos of the six crew members on the plaques. We have traced four of the crew, and Mr Cuthbert is one of the two we have yet to acquire.'
