top of page provides an insight into the role and experiences of a navigator in RAF Bomber Command during WWII.

Jim Glasspool, RAF Navigator, Lanncaster Bombers, Training in Canada

This website details information of just one of the “many” who served in RAF Bomber Command during the Second World War, navigator Jim Glasspool.  


Jim flew in a Lancaster bomber in 622 and 15 (XV) squadrons based in Mildenhall in Suffolk.


You’ll find details of his “ops” or operational sorties during the war, captured in his log book and notebook.

As Jim’s son I put the website together to serve as a resource for those interested in the period, be they students, historians or anyone who’d like to know a little more of the men who flew during the war.


Please feel free to ask questions or contact me via the contact form.
