    Default airmen who completed two tours

    Hi,

    does anybody know if there is a list of airmen who completed two tours in Bomber Command?

    Thanks.

    Hi Marcel,

    unfortunately I am not aware of such a list existence.
    I am also not able to help you with any particular name as our 311 Sq served with the BC only Aug 1940-Apr1942 and there was no case of two tours completed during this period.

    Having researched a multitude of individual RAF Bomber Command personnel, many of whom completed two tours, I have never heard of such a list. I am also struggling to see why one exist in the first place. Now I am guessing that the RCAF may (I say may) have had such a list at some point, because they were issuing Operational Wings (and bars for multiple tours) to their own folk.
