Bomber Command Oral History

The University of Lincoln is building an archive of Bomber command crews
a great deal of hard work has already been down, however they are looking for any surviving aircrew to record their oral history
also if you are a relative you can check the database and they would like to you to get in contact to supply any additional information or photographs or loan them logbooks to copy
one of my relatives is being interviewed next week, and I will be able to log on and listen to his recording

from their website
The International Bomber Command Digital Archive

The first stage of the creation and digitisation of the archive is now complete with all the names of the losses from the Bomber Command Rolls of Honour, from Lincoln Cathedral, now digitised and checked against a number of sources. We have a team of researchers who are now trying to source more background information on each of the individuals listed. That includes verifying ages, next of kin, rank, names and adding stories, scanned documents and photographs to bring each of these men to life.

You can get involved! If you think you’re relative or ancestor should be included in this information please search through the archive below, check the details and add in any additional information you may have. For those with copies of log books who are interested in having them included in the database and preserved forever, please indicate on the form and one of our researchers will be in contact.

If you are searching for a particular serviceman, please begin by searching for their surname alone. Only if there are too many instances of that particular surname should you need to add further search terms. If this proves necessary, begin with squadron or service country.
