As you all know - my love is the Lancaster .... and the Wellington - which my Father flew.

My Father met my Mother at my Mothers airfield. My Father had been in Mediterranean on various ops including Monte Casino ... Maltese Convoy protection etc. Then transferred back to UK for the saturation bombing of German cities ...
Returning from a raid, his aircraft was diverted away from home airfield due to bomb damage from German attacks. The airfield he landed at being where my Mother was stationed.
The story goes that after de-brief - he and crew were entering mess-hall and he saw this young WAAF sitting over in the corner and told the 'boys' with him --- I'll take her out tonight. Rest is family history !
