Thanks for the information regarding James Goodrick who was cousin Jim’s navigator at 625 Squadron.

Have you a special interest in James Goodrick as a relative or in connection with his 12 Squadron posting,

perhaps? If so there is more about F/Sgt Goodrick in

‘Does Life Hold Any More in Store?’ or contact me via email –

I am one of William (Uncle Bill) Allan’s nephews – my mother Lorraine was Bill’s sister.

I was born in 1947 so I didn’t meet or know him; however,

my mother and her siblings always spoke lovingly of him.

It’s wonderful to be able to read such a detailed account of Bill’s wartime experience.

Congratulations to all involved in collating this information and recording it for posterity.

My “bucket list” includes a visit to Uncle Bill’s grave where I will pay my respects to a brave man.

COMMENT = This site is amazing for people to be connected with Bomber Command History.

The Making and the Running of such a site is fascinating to me ‘Time,Cost,Effort’ your documentation, and preparation of the site has taken its place in Google and is a great way to recorded  local peoples history.

When the home page loaded I was looking out the window for a low flying propeller aircraft, I love it.

I would never have visited this site if it weren’t for a friend who recommended it on Facebook.

  1. Thank you for your sensitive write-up on the events at Carpenters Gardens in 1944. Your writing brings the event to life. You really capture the irony of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and the rippling effect of the impact that has.
