The Association presents this website to inform readers of an organisation which has remained in existence since the standing down of 578 Squadron in 1945 and is pleased to invite world wide participation from anybody who has a connection or interest.
Over the years a considerable amount of research and recording has been undertaken with the continuing objective of securing for the future an accurate and detailed account of events pertaining to an active, front line heavy bomber squadron operating in World War II. Such information is available to those who can establish a genuine reason for requiring it. We also welcome any relevant contribution and enquiry, which should be addressed to:
