At First Sight


Wing Commander Roy Elliot DSO DFC*
Officer Commanding No. 627 Squadron
November 1943 - June 1944

Forward

It is good to have some well reaearched facts about 627 Squadron's contribution to the 1939-45 war Bomber Offensive since so little has been published about this unique Squadron so far.

One hopes that both old and young who read this book will not only get some enjoyment from doing so but also they will, of course, be much better informed about 627's singular efforts towards improving Bomber Command's target marking accuracy as World War II progressed.

Naturally I found this book of absorbing interest and I am sure that others who served in the Allied Air Forces during World War II will find the same.
