This website was created in order to record the events and the exploits of those who served at Fiskerton during the war years.

It also  serves as a tribute to those persons and is a source of reference for anyone who has an interest in the airfield.


Joint webmasters are: Martin Nichols and David Briggs. 

Martin Nichols, despite being from a Naval family and who served  in the Royal Navy also, has had a life-long interest in the

wartime exploits of Bomber Command.

Born in Bomber County, he spent many hours from a young age visiting and researching the old airfields which litter Lincolnshire-

having a particular interest in Fiskerton.


David Briggs, who saw active service  with the Yorkshire Light Infantry, has an interest in Bomber Command as a result of his

Uncle's wartime service at Fiskerton where he flew thirty-two operations as a Radio Operator with 576 squadron.


 David has spent many thousands of hours collecting  the airfield records relating to the airfield and the squadrons

which were there during the war. He is an excellent source of interest for anyone researching a relative who served at this airfield.






The images of Fiskerton were taken by Martin Nichols in 1968  and 2006.

The wartime images were copied, with permission, from the MOD Bomber Command website and ww2images.com. 

The aircrew images were kindly donated by former aircrew or decendants of former aircrew and groundcrew.
