    Default 178 Squadron - Warsaw Airlift Aug to Sept 1944

    Am involved with a Group on Facebook covering 31 & 34 Squadrons SAAF, these units were involved in the Warsaw Airlift Aug to Sept 1944 along with other units of 205 Group operating out of the Foggia region in Italy

    As part of the 2014 70th Anniversary of the Warsaw Airlift a proposal has been put forward to install a Memorial in the Warsaw Uprising Museum that will record the names of ALL aircrew Polish, RAF and Commonwealth aircrew that flew on Airlift operations

    So far we believe we have approximately 95% of the names involved, however we are finding it difficult to check names of 178 Squadron aircrew that took part

    So does anyone have any relevant info that could help or even know of any 178 Squadron survivors from that period

    Responses via this Forum or Private Message would be appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    My late father was an RAF(VR) Air Gunner who went to Warsaw in Lib VI KH150 'R' of 34 Squadron SAAF the night of 10 September 1944

    Do you have the 178 Squuadron ORB? If not, you let me know what names you have, and I could check for any that you lack.

    The list could be sent to my email address: d.gunby@ext.canterbury.ac.nz

    What criteria do you have for the airlift participation? Missions to Warsaw alone, or with missions to Puszcza Kampinoska, or all missions to Poland in the period?
