    Default Sgt Arthur Hendley - rear gunner on lancasters

    Hello all, I've just joined the forum with the hope that maybe someone call recall my father Arthur Hendley, my dad was a rear gunner on across lancasters.
    My dad never talked about his time in the RAF, all he told us he served on lancasters as a rear gunner & he was under age when he joined.
    My dad's brother, my uncle Harry served in the Royal Marines & was on Crete , I'd be grateful if anyone ca recall his name on squadron orbs or in listed aircrew.
    He never told us his service number, what squadron he served with or the aircraft he was in.
    I'm hoping to go down to the national archives at Kew to see if I can find his name & service number to aid my search.
    Many thanks
    Paul hendley

    I can help you start to narrow your search Paul, though unfortunately in a negative way, by telling you that your father was not with 467 nor 463 squadrons based at Waddington.

    Arthur Robert or Arthur C?

    You can find his service number from home or work by using the free download of AIR 78 files from The National Archives.

    For details of what to do and what AIR 78 contains.
