    Default 617 sqn 1947 goodwill tour to usa and canada

    Does anyone have any information and photos of 617 sqn goodwill tour to usa and canada in 1947. My grandfather was a crew member on one of the aircraft. We have a couple of photos. These are currently with the Ibbc being digitized for their records.

    I have some photographs of the 617 goodwill tour of the USA and Canada. My father was one of the navigators on that trip.

    I have a copy of the relevant file from Kew. AIR27/2527 617 Sqn. Appendices. 13.4Mb. I paid for a download in 2014. I forgot what I was after at the time, but found the contents had been mis-labled and I ended up with something I wasn't interested in.

    Several souvenir postal covers were carried on this flight and are much sought after by collectors.
