    Hello, would anyone know of a book on Operation Aerial at all please. My Grandfather was evacuated during this as a medical orderly. I’ve read a few bits online but wondered if there is anything in print at all.

    Thank you

    I'm writing one at the moment, it will be out in the spring. Do you have any of your grandfather's recollections?

    Hi Roy,
    Sorry, we know very little unfortunately other than he joined up before the war and went out as part of the BEF and was with 6 General Hospital which I think was evacuated out of Guerande ?

    Thank you Chris. If you have a date I could tell you which ships sailed (from St Nazaire) on that day.

    Hello Roy,

    I have been carrying out some research on the coaster SS Glen Tilt. She had an eventful 1940: part of the last convoy from Norway on 9 April 1940 after the German invasion; took part in Operation Aerial.I understand that Glen Tilt was also at Alderney on 19th June 1940 and took civilians to Weymouth on 20th June and then sailed to Guernsey on 21st arriving back at Weymouth with civilians on 22nd June. I have attached her log book from Kew BT381_631 in case its of interest to you. If you have any further information or a photo of the Glen Tilt please let me know. Regards John H
