Men of 142 (City of Worcester) Squadron 1941-44

As part of the background research into our Wellington, Z1206, we have compiled a list of the men of 142 Squadron. If you or a member of your family is on the list, please can you contact us? We aim to build an archive of 142 Squadron that will become a resource for families and researchers alike, by copying original material.

Where a home town is noted, the airman's name was hand-written in John Laight's copy of "Blida's Bombers", published in North Africa in 1943.  Other names have come from the squadron Operations Record Book. Ground crew are seldom named in most RAF records and we will appreciate any further information or names.
