156 Squadron RAF - 8 Group Pathfinder Force

As the 156 squadron motto “We light the way” with the Greek god Prometheus holding a burning flame suggests it was the job of a path finder crew to spearhead this stream of bombers and mark the targets for the other bombers to aim at.

Walking down the corridor out side of the Ballroom, where the birthday lunch buffet was served, I was pleased to find the 75(NZ) Squadron badge .Given that the name and badge had been gifted by the RAF to the RNZAF at the end of the war in appreciation of the sacrifices the country had made, I wasn’t sure it would be there.
