Project Introduction Page
It was whilst attending the 102 Squadron Association Reunion at Pocklington, Yorkshire in 2019 that this project came about.
I heard that there were quite a few Bomber Command Graves at Barmby Moor and being a Genealogist with a keen interest in WW2 Bomber Command, I just had to take a look.
Following the AGM on the Sunday I got chatting to the Minister from Barmby Moor who said that she would like the Children from the area to know more about who these men were. After all they are a lot more than just Names & Dates etched in Stone....these men served, fought and died for their country!
