I have no knowledge of where they were based, it was just attached to the part I quoted from another site. I was commenting on the OP stating it was brave English lads. The British forces were drawn from every part of the British Isles and the Empire.
It wasn't until the 70's when people started to realise it was not just the British man who helped defeat Germany and one Squadron was
formed in Lincolnshire and was totally ran by Polish folk who ran from Hitler's gas chambers and for them to gain their vengance,
300 Sqd was born which was RAF Faldingworth and by christ[excuse the pun] did a bloody good job.
During the war there was many Indians who wanted to become air-crew but because of their religion they had to wear a turban at all
times many never got past the first tests of becoming air-crew because they refused to wear the type C leather helmet.
I've got a close friend in Ontario Canada and the house next door to him is were Guy Gibson was born and grew up, So my mate has always been mad about Gibson....lol
Still waiting for a reply by the OP for the Wellington memorial! Fingers crossed he may read his post again
I hate RED DWARF
