Just in time for ANZAC Day, this is the story of the men who flew the RAAF Lancaster ‘J for JIG’. This is the bomber plane that took off from an airfield in Lincolnshire with seven young crewmen – five Australians, two Scots - on a mission to target factories in Germany. ‘J for Jig’ never made it as they were shot down during the night over France. Crew is the story of the men on board, about who they were, what they did, who they loved and who they left behind. It includes the reality of war and the impact on lives.... it is fitting that this year’s ‘poppy appeal’ is called ‘not all wounds bleed’ and loved ones that had to live with loss or live with invisible wounds in their minds along with visible wounds. The Crew tell of their hardships as prisoners or evaders in a dreadful unforgettable war. This is the story of one crew in February 1944 and sits alongside many other books we have instore as we commemorate ANZAC Day and remember the sacrifices in all wars.
