Re: Bomber Command Clasp

Thanks for putting these details up, I had heard that this was perhaps going to happen but didn't know that we could apply now. I just need to get ink so that I can print off my dads log book and get it sent off with the form. Thanks again, this will mean so much to me and I'm sure to lots of others...

The logbook of R C Dadson Wop/AG 218 & 242 Sq

This is the logbook of my father and the photo's that I have of him and his crew.
