From Charles Foster, the Dambusters blog:
Before the trial of Alex Bateman, recently jailed for the theft of Flight Sergeant John Fraser’s logbook, the Metropolitan Police found a photo album belonging to Flight Officer Ken Earnshaw in Bateman’s London house. Both officers flew on the same Lancaster in the second world war.
Despite being found guilty, Bateman continues to maintain his innocence and refuses to disclose what happened to Fraser’s logbook, but the Earnshaw photo album will shortly be returned to its owner’s descendants in Canada.
After Bateman’s trial, the police entrusted the album to Shere Fraser Lowe, daughter of Flight Sergeant John Fraser, so that she could return it to the Earnshaw family. In two days time she will present the photo album to Earnshaw’s nephew Jim Heather at the Bomber Command Museum of Canada in Nanton, Alberta.
