This site is dedicated to the brave men and women – aircrew and ground staff, who together formed the 158 Squadron during World War II.
For as much as we owe them, this site attempts to acknowledge their names and remember them.
Within the pages of this site it is hoped to recognise the courage and sacrifice made by the young men who flew with the Squadron.
Additionally, never forgetting those men and women, who although not fliers, also made a major contribution to the war effort and in some cases made the supreme sacrifice.
The wealth of information and archive material held by the 158 Squadron Association has been accumulated over the years through many kind and generous donations. In addition to those we would also like to acknowledge the extensive research carried out by three individuals in particular whose work provides the cornerstone of the information we are able to share: The archive team are forever in debt to Bill Chorley, and the late Roy Benwell, not only for the essential squadron history published as In Brave Company, but also for the kind and willing help in sharing their unparalleled knowledge of all things Bomber Command that they have offered over the years. We are also indebted to our late Association Chairman Eddie Fell who personally collected a vast amount of information on the squadron personnel and the aircraft flown.
