Covering World War 2 only, this book gives great detail of virtually every raid in which 10 Squadron participated from September 1939 to May 1945 using Bomber Command 4 Group and 10 Squadron Ops Record information. This book's writer, Chris Ward is a prolific, well-known author, of many other squadron histories. If you're researching your WW2 relatives this book's well-worth a look.
We are delighted to announce that the Tangmere Memorial was unveiled on 16 August 2019 and is installed close to the site where a 10 Squadron Halifax, HX 181, crashed into a hangar at RAF Tangmere in November 1943, killing all the crew.
Further funds are still required to meet the final cost of the Memorial construction. Your kind donation, no matter how small, will be much appreciated by the relatives of those lost. It is hoped that the bill of £3,500 will be raised by crowd-funding. Please donate something to this most worthy cause. It's easy to do and even a fiver will make a difference.
