Bomber Command in Sydney, June 2014

While many of the Bomber Command veterans who still live in Sydney travelled down to Canberra for the commemorations held there in early June, a small number attended a ceremony held at the Cenotaph in Martin Place in the middle of the city. I’m still waiting for ‘official’ photos from one of the organisers but, in the meantime, here are three photos from the 460 Squadron Veterans and Friends Group, courtesy of committee member Ray Berghouse.

    Hi Adam,

    Interesting excerpt from our latest Newsletter, after reading your blog about the Canberra lunch

    Fred Danckwardt, Gunner with Fred Merrill’s crew, 463 Squadron, gave an interview to Legasee covering his career in the RAF with quite a lot about his time with 467 and 463 Squadrons. His interview can be found at http://www.legasee.org.uk

    Their aircraft, JO-O, LL790, was “Ogling Olwyn from Oodnadatta”

    Cheers,

    Diane
