I started to write a local history story on a Polish Bomber that crashed near the house where I was born (in fighter country!). Ten years later, I have written a short history of the 304 Squadron and about 300 mini-biographies of the men who were in it. Hundreds more to go and it has become a never ending story! I have made a lot of friends along the way - especially in the families of the airmen. It is up on the Internet but will probably never be published as a book. My 2,000 word article has reached well over 180,000 words and the project has taken over my life!
