The International Bomber Command Digital Archive team, based in Lincoln, attended the Brookland event and brought their digital scanning equipment with them. Those with memorabilia pertaining to their H39 relative, such as documents and photos, that they wished to become part of the archive and/or included in the forthcoming book about the crew members involved in the battle, brought it along. Please contact the H39 team during 2020 if you still have memorabilia you would like to be included in the book.
