The images on this page were supplied by Dave Briggs.
They were the standard notes and logs used by all Lancaster crews,
the notes being issued from the Lancaster manufacturer, A.V.Roe.
They were taken from the original wartime records of a recently deceased relation of a work collegue.
He was: Sgt. Pottage, a No 15 Sqn Flight Engineer based at Mildenhall.
They give a facinating insight into the complex and technical duties Lancaster crews
were expected to perform and all under the most difficult conditions imagineable-usually at night,
in the intense cold of altitude, often in poor weather and in constant danger of flak,
night fighters and mid-air collisions.
