The stories connected to the story

Great unpublished history!

Bill Cheall fought at Dunkirk, North Africa and Sicily, was in the first wave on Gold Beach on D-Day, and finally went to Germany. Since Bill's WW2 memoirs were published, many former comrades and families have come forward with stories and diaries of their own, all forming part of the jigsaw of Bill's war. The aim of these podcasts is to bring the memories to life and honour the soldiers, airmen and seamen who were connected to Bill in some way.

14 The Last Flight of Lancaster Lily Mars, WW2

The Last Flight of Lancaster Lily Mars, WW2  

Great, unpublished history!  

The story of WW2 Lancaster bomber LL678 together with its courageous crew during WW2 in 1944  |  The Lancaster’s veteran RAF crew of Canadian, Australian and English airmen had been on what was to be their last mission before they retired.  | And on a mission with almost too many cruel twists to bear, we hear the last poignant letter sent by the pilot to his family in an unwitting but foreboding prediction of the mission’s fate.
