Hello,

I wonder if someone here might be able to help me. I have a bit of an interest in researching photos and so on on from the world wars, and people often give me things to look up for them, recently Ive had medal collections from WW1, photos of Polish militia circa 1919, and a Wermacht photo diary circa 1944. I have recently been given a stack of letters to and from an airman from 656 Squadron RAF in 1944.

I havent yet been able to find much out on 656sqdn, even the 656sqdn Association website is full of dead links. The letters contain wonderfull snapshots of life and peoples thoughts and opinions of the time, but I just cant find any real information or photos on the squadron itself.

Im hoping somebody out there will be able to point me in the right direction.

Many thanks.
