        Thankyou for the link...

        This bomber also holds a special meaning for me...

        My Grandfather's cousin was a front gunner in a Wellington.

        I have his diary in which he reveals taking part in the first 1000 bomber raid over Germany.

        Unfortunately his Wellington did not make it back from a mission and he is buried in Hamburg I believe.
        Looking for Propaganda / Recruitment Posters and any Max Wünsche photos and documents!

          Fascinating. Thanks for posting. My Great Uncle was the Pilot of a Wellington with 75 NZ Squadron, killed in October 1941. I visited R for Robert at Brooklands in 2017. I'd love to see this one recovered.
