RAAF Hudson Story Volume 2.

These books would be a valuable research reference for anyone who had a forebear in the RAAF squadrons that flew the Lockheed Hudson bomber in RAAF service during World War II and indeed after.

A most impressive book as the author has collected a vast amount of information about individual aircraft, pilots, crew, sorties, squadron history and even has chapters on what happened to the planes and men after the war. However, his main focus on wartime history.

This book Volume 2, covers the :

1 Overall operations in the Northwest area, Darwin, Ambon, Timor,Koepang. Has separate section about Hughes Airfield (astonishing amount of detail and scarce photographs).
2 Operations in the Northeastern area, Papua New Guinea, Queensland.
3 Operations of Transports and Air Ambulances
4 Post War Sales and Civil Use of Ex Raaf Hudsons
5 Casualties List in Squadron Order
6 Honours and Awards to Raaf Hudson Personnel
7 Airfields Named in Honour of Hudson Fliers
8 Fates of all Hudsons received by the RAAF in Australia
9 RAAF Hudson power plants engines etc.
10 RAAF Crews made prisoner of the Japanese
