Most the site is from the men involved, but certain articles and books were accessed. Stephan Fourie did most the research and supplied most the information on times and  the photos. Derrick Barnes helped to transcribe the work into English. David Gibson was a co-ordinator and told me all the juicy parts when my computer was inaccessable and then forgot them as soon as I tried to write them down. Rowley Medlin is responsible for the discovery of the missing airmen's graves. Others have contributed though the years and where possible we have indicated where the information was found.
