Unable to obtain the latest bomb-aiming aids quickly enough and in sufficient numbers to equip every plane, the RAF took the decision to employ pathfinder aircraft to fly ahead and accurately mark targets for the main bomber force to follow. This illustrated celebration of the elite Pathfinder Force that was formed as a result in August 1942 draws on interviews with surviving veterans, archive photographs and official documents and memorabilia from the Pathfinder Museum at RAF Wyton.
