On March 17th, 1945, Ted Gosling flew on his first operation of the war. Ted Gosling’s relatives have been sharing information since 2013.
Jeremy is the latest one.
Hope you are very well. It’s been a long time since I sent you the information on my grandfather Ft Lt E L Gosling, a navigator on Mosquitos at the end of the war with 23 Squadron.
I’ve kept in touch with your page with interest since though. Congratulations on collating such body of work to commemorate these brave men.
I have recently come into possession of my grandfather’s RAF log book through his niece and thought I’d share some pages of interest with you. They are from 1945 and show operation info (including shooting up a train and a sighting of an Me 262), the VE Day fly past over London and the final day of the squadron at Little Snoring. Thought they might be of interest to you and your readers.
I’ve also got his original navigation books and a letter to the author of a book on 100 Group in which he details the use of different radar in Mosquitos.
My best wishes
