Ted Pierce RNZAF 1943

Flying Officer Pierce was the bomb aimer to Pilot Officer Jenkins DFC. The following pages were sent to me by Brett Pierce son on the late “Ted” Pierce.  I am indebted to Brett for the use of these pages and the help he has given me.

I have used all the “operational” pages of Flying Officer Pierce’s Log Book as they given a fascinating insight into the demands placed on crews during this period of the bombing war.
