Roll of Honour No. 75(HD) and No.75(Bomber) Squadron

Many thanks to Kevin for passing on his now complete Roll of Honour for aircrew lost in No. 75 (Home Defence) Squadron RAF and No. 75(Bomber) Squadron RAF.

The addition of these casualty records, not only recognises Kevin’s ongoing efforts to create a full Roll of Honour for aircrew of the Squadron (which I know, given their relatively small number has taken Kevin a considerable amount of time to collect) , but also expands the records on the blog relative to the recent additions to the Operational Record Book section of the blog regarding the activities of these 2 Squadrons, which would eventually become 75(NZ) Squadron RAF.

I have restructured the Roll of Honour section on the blog slightly to add these 2 new Rolls – the much larger Wartime Roll now sits under ‘ No. 75(NZ) Squadron RAF’ – the list by country and alphabetical list sitting as 2 jump off menus under it. To see the 2 new Rolls, simply click on the relevant one under the main Roll of Honour menu item.

Whilst never presumptive that we will hit another 10,000 views on the blog, given the proximity of our arrival at the significant milestone of 150,000 views, I’d like to think that readers to the blog can push us to this new figure and at the same time perhaps help to remember the names of these boys, who, perhaps relative to the lost of the 2nd World War, have been lost in history…..
