I have always had a keen interest in Bomber Command as my late grandfather served with 51 and 578 Squadrons in 4 Group as an Engine Fitter. In addition my late uncle was ground crew with 15 Squadron at Mildenhall. As a result, my interest was sparked at a young age and has never left me. I have researched various Bomber Command crashes near to my home in Suffolk and over the years have corresponded with a number of survivors from those incidents and researched those who sadly did not survive. I am a volunteer at a local aviation museum and also have a passion for the history of the USAAF 8th Air Force. I have assisted with research for a number of books and look forward to assisting with this very worthwhile cause where I can.
