The scars of the Second World War still line bomber country

17/07/2012 Posted by chris

This is the moving article written by Neil Tweedie in the Daily Telegraph on the 27 June 2012 explaining the role of WW2 RAF Bomber crews and how their sacrifices still affect families today. It features Patrick Otter whose father was a Lancaster Bomber Pilot with 9 Squadron based at RAF Bardney and flew during the “Battle of Berlin”. The Daily Telegraph and its readers raised 1 million pounds towards the cost of building the Bomber Command Memorial which was Unveiled by the Queen on 28 June 2012. Patrick Otter has also written an excellent book called ‘Lincolnshire Airfields in the Second World War’. (Countryside Books, £12.95)
