    Hey guys,

    currently working on a research project and I've chosen to talk about the Australians in bomber command during WW2, namley heavy bombers.

    I will be talking about the specific RAAF squadrons 460 etc... but also Australians as part of the RAF crews.

    I'm just putting my feelers out there for any documents anyone might know of that relates to the subject.

    All is muchly appreciated,

    Alex.

    A worthwhile read to give you a good grounding in the subject would be:

    "Chased by the Sun" The Australians in Bomber Command in WWII by Hank Nelson. ISBN 1-74114-847-2

    Agreed about the above book, it's a good read. Also Alex read up on the official histories here - Official Histories and Official Histories these should contain pretty much anything you need to know.
