Bomber Command Losses & Airmen from WW2

Project Introduction Page

My interest in Aviation started with a story of a family member who as an inventor designed & built an early flying machine.  I then went on to research the service of a Great Uncle who was one of the Aces of WW1 having served with the Royal Flying Corps. 

I went on to research his younger brother who had served with Bomber Command during WW2 & became hooked on the subject.

As a Professional Genealogist I then went on to assist a couple of Associations, Museums & Private Researchers to research a few Aircraft crashes before going on to volunteer with 102 Squadron Association as Archivist.  In May of 2020 I completed 'The Barmby Moor War Dead Project' researching the lives of over 50 Airmen of Bomber Command who lost their lives whilst serving with the strategic force.

Some of their stories are told here & the project page will be updated as more men are added.
