Hello, and welcome to my site.
75 (NZ) Squadron has been an interest of mine for quite a while now, and I thought I would share some of my research with you.
During my research I have developed a deep admiration for the crews flying the Wellington and Stirling bombers. They didn’t have some of the navigational aids and other developments later crews in Lancasters had, but carried on night after night, sometimes suffering appalling losses. So this site is really a tribute to those crews, and the ground crew that kept them flying.
Most of my information comes straight from the Operational Record Books (ORB’s) for 75 (NZ) Squadron. I also have various other papers kindly passed on to me by other researchers.
I must give thanks to Peter Hasselgren and Lee Richards for all their help with 75 squadron documentation, and Steve Kelly for a copy of his fathers Flying Log Book.
Additional Information from Errol W. Martyn’s brilliant books “For Your Tomorrow”.
As you can see, this is a work in progress. I hope to update the pages on a regular basis.
