I am posting this as I thought members may be interested. It's a new children's book called Tail- End Charlie by Mick Manning and published by Frances Lincoln. It's about my father's time as an airgunner first with Wellingtons and then with Mitchell B25's with 180 squadron. He was at Melsbroek in 1944 and wounded on a raid over Schmidtheim on the 23rd December during the Battle of the Bulge. It's a picture book aimed at children of around age 8 -12. It's available in the UK and USA with Frances Lincoln and distributed by Walker Books Australia in Oz and NZ. You can order it at your bookstore or google it - lots of online shops bookstores sell it. Any problems let me know. We are going to be at the Yorkshire Air Museum on the 6th of November to promote the book. There is an article about it on The Times online website
