Following on from the original post about Gwyn Martin, observer with the Curry and Saunders crew, I am very pleased to present Gwyn’s logbook, again, very generously donated to the site by his Son, David.
The logbook as presented covers Gywn’s entire flying career, from training to his first operational tour with 75(NZ) Squadron RAF, through to instructional duties at No.12 Operational Training Unit and finally his second tour posting to 150 Squadron – coming to an abrupt end on the 23rd of October 1942 when Gwyn and his crew were brought down by flak, crash landing in Lake Langavanet, in Norway. He would spend the next 3 years in Stalag Luft III.
There is some interesting notation against certain Ops and looking through his time with 11 O.T.U after his first tour with 75(NZ) Squadron, I couldn’t help but note the names of some of the Pilots going through the training Squadron. Whilst I have no way of knowing if its the same individuals, its interesting to see the surnames as Pilot of Baigent and Fox to name but two…..
