15th April, 1969

Officer Commanding,
RAF Waddington,
Lincoln.

Dear Group Captain Griffiths,

I should like to convey my personal thanks to you for the hospitality shewn me during David Naden’s filming of “Bomber Crew” on 11th and 12th April.

The former members of my crew very much appreciated the interest and time given by 50 Squadron to some of its old comrades.

May I take this opportunity of wishing you a pleasant journey to and tour in FEAF.

I am, Sir,
Yours very sincerely,


Remembering 199,000

SIR – A Bomber Command museum is being built at Hendon to record the history of our last imperial fighting force and to be a memorial to the 119,000 members of the British Commonwealth and the United States killed during the Battle of Germany. The Bomber Command Museum Appeal Fund, a registered charity, has been launched to raise the £2,500,000 required to build and endow the museum.

We hope to establish contact with all former members of Bomber Command. I am finding this a relatively straightforward job with aircrew but am having difficulty in reaching the men and women of the ground crews who made it possible for the command to function at all. I would be pleased to hear from any former member who would like to help us with this enterprise.

W. S. O. RANDLE
Group Capt.
Director of Appeals,
Royal Air Force Museum,
Aerodrome Road,
Hendon,
