Product Description

COMING HOME TO KIRKBY

by Richard Taylor

The Avro Lancaster formed the backbone of RAF Bomber Command and was considered by many as the best bomber aircraft of WWII. 630 Squadron formed at East Kirkby in November 1943 as part of Bomber Command’s strategic bombing campaign. Equipped with Lancasters, they often flew together with 57 Squadron from their shared Lincolnshire base to take part in many major bombing raids including those on Berlin and Hitler’s alpine home at Berchtesgaden.
