    Default WW2 - Avro Lancaster Crew Radio

    Audio From the Past [E01] - WW2 - Avro Lancaster Crew Radio

    In 1943, the Royal Air Force began a night bombing campaign against Germany, the like of which had never been seen before. Over the next twelve months, tens of thousands of aircrews flew across the North Sea to drop their bombs on german cities. They were opposed by the full force of the Luftwaffe, but also by a nightmare of flak, treacherously icy conditions and constant mechanical malfunctions. Most of these crews never finished their tour of operations, but were either shot down and killed, or taken prisoner by an increasingly hostile enemy.

    My late Uncle T de T MacDonald ( Pilot) Bomber Command ,was one of the lucky ones to come back to UK safely, he was shot down though and was badly injured but still survived, He later made Squadron Leader, then Wing Commander.
    I will always be so proud of him. You were my Hero Uncle Trevor!
