I'm working on a research project and I am looking to confirm that certain individuals were part of the No. 300 Polish Bomber Squadron during WW2.

Is there a place online or offline where one could find a list of the bomber crew personnel that went through this particular squadron? It would be best if the source also had their dates of service, missions flown, kill-count, injuries sustained, date released from active service or transfer, etc.

At the absolute minimum, I would need the list of names of the various members of the squadron through the war years.

I have seen the website devoted to this particular squadron but as far as I can tell it does not have an exhaustive list the personnel attached to it.

  • The Air Ministry or equivalent Archives...

I'm not sure whether a list has been compiled and published, but it should be possible to extract the information (at least for air crew) from the Operational Records of 300 Squadron.

These have been digitised, and can be accessed from the website of the UK National Archives. However, note that these records are not free to download.

An alternative may be to visit the UK National Archives at Kew in person (or hire a professional researcher to do so on your behalf) where the records can be viewed (and photographed) free-of-charge.
