Just wanted to flag up that after a gap of 20 odd years I have revamped and updated this website.

My grandfather was a Lancaster pilot at 12 Squadron from May to July 1943, sadly losing his life returning from Turin on 13 July 1943.

It encompasses;

  • Training - No. 7 ITW Newquay, No. 2 BFTS Lancaster, California, 25 & 30 OTUs and 1656 CU
  • Records - 12 Squadron Operation Record Books and snippets from the units above
  • Log Book - From the navigator in the crew Sgt Reginald Sneesby
  • Photographs - From our family and from many others who have a link to 12 Squadron & Wickenby plus a Polaris Flight Academy album
  • Salute - Images from the No. 2 BFTS magazine from 1941/42
  • Research - about my grandfather's crew and others

Kind regards Tom
