 What a brilliant website and wonderful tribute to the men and women of 578 squadron. My visit to Burn forty two years ago was the inspiration for writing my history of No.4 group, From Hull, Hell and Halifax mentioned on this website. Best wishes to all who keep the memories alive from those gallent years. Chris Blanchett.

Subject:Stood in the Wheatsheaf as I type.
 I'm currently stood in the pool room of the Wheatsheaf public house with my Brother Shenton and my son researching our grandfather and his time at Burn with 578. In the book they have here there's an article, written by our grandfather giving a brief insight into his adventures (?) as a WOP for 578. My grandfather was awarded the DFM, he would have received a commission to PO and the DFC if it wasn't for a mix up with his parachute webbing. His crew were Museum P8377. His skipper was Flt Lt K. T. Davies, the aircraft was X-XRay of C flight, 578 Sqn. Off to walk the airfield.

Subject:Warrant Officer air gunner PWS Pope DFC.
 After researching my father, I was delighted to find this recognition in October 1944 history, and thank the author for this memory. Dad was with 51 squadron and transferred to 578. Father was reluctant to tell of his war memories, but he did take me to meet Bomber Harris at the Air Gunners first reunion dinner and rememberence church parade. Dad was a founder member of the air gunner association. I have some photos of dad in uniform and at the church, also of a newspaper cutting, which I can pass on by email. Dad died in September 1981 at St Georges hospital London.
