    My name is Paul Emery an ex-pat living in the USA for 30 years, my main interest lies with 254 Squadron of Coastal Command and the early air war years over Norway and the Bristol Blenheim aircraft. My interest was sparked by growing up hearing the sparse details available regarding my Uncle who was shot down over Stavanger Norway, May 27th 1940. Thanks to the internet I have been able to fill in some of the gaps in his story and to this end I have created a website dedicated to him and his squadron. This site can be found at

    254 Squadron

    I hope you'll take a look and I also hope that this forum might help further my research. Someday I would like to have an online copy of the 254 Squadron ORB but since I am on the wrong side of the pond getting to the PRO is rather difficult.

    Welcome to the forum. Happy posting.

    BTW, is there any chance that you like the Boston Red Sox(my favorite team in MLB)? Just wondered since you're from Boston.:)

    I thought I had found a flyer for your Honour Roll but I just realised he's 1943 ... maybe you can keep him on the back burner - in case you decide to go further !!

    Welcome aboard, Paul. The early days in Norway are one of the oft-forgotten periods of the war. Sadly, I'm not widely read in the area but am keen on wherever the Blenheim flew (which is almost everywhere!).

    MtoM.html - ah, I have been there before! Have wondered about this book. Looks good.
