Tracing my Dad's service in RAF ASR

By Steve Hale

I am not a historian. But I am proud that my Dad (94 now) served on several RAF Air Sea Rescue launches in WW2. He can remember HSLs 127, 144, 149, 156, 178 all around the North Sea and English Channel. I am trying to piece together more of his service record. In particular he recalls rescuing the complete crew of a downed Flying Fortress from the North Sea. Anyone out there able to help me please? Thank you.

My father was coxswain on HSL 142 at some point during the war, his name was Charlie  Bullock. I have a photo of him and the crew on 142, but don't know what year that was. I understand that part of 142 is at Tangmere Museum.
