A wonderful collection

A final heartfelt thanks to Martyn and his father Ernest for the donation of a remarkable collection of documents and images relating to Ernest’s brother, Reuben. I have finally uploaded these documents as a jump off menu from Reuben’s logbook, which can be found in the logbook section of the site.

Many of these documents I have never seen before, so its well worth a look through them – if you recognise anything, or can add anything else by way of personnel identification or explanations regarding the documents, as always, I would love to hear from you.

Ernest and Martyn, once again, many thanks for your generosity.

As the first offering from the documentation that Martyn has so generously recently donated to me, the logbook of Sgt. Reuben William Birch, Rear Gunner with the Meharry crew.

As with my fathers logbook, I will place the other documents Martyn has passed on to me in a jump off menu off of his logbook page, through next week.
