Interviews have been conducted with surviving witnesses and archive photographs unearthed. My part in the project has been researching the graves of Luftwaffe crewmen buried in Higher Cemetery, Exeter. My first thread posted on this forum relates to one of the men buried there.
My Dad who died last September was an ARP cycle messenger (at 14 years old) in the Exeter Blitz and I have his story written down: it includes the burning of the City Library and Castle Street. He also, via a junior Air Ministry job, got to know the pilots of 307 Polish Squadron and had joyrides in their Beaufighters. My Mum could give you her perspective (from an Anderson shelter in Ebrington Road) — she gives talks to primary school groups about her wartime childhood. Contact me on nick@ghostbombers.com if you're interested.

Re: In General, What is Everyone Doing?

I'm pretty happy to come across this site with friendly folk discussing a favorite subject. Attaching a few pages from my painting website that i dedicate to my father, Lt. Ernest Anders Erickson a former B-17 Air Corps pilot. The site has been going for years, though began my father's pages in 2013 when I inherited his huge Air Corps archives. take a look-see.
