The fascinating WW II story of William Meyer, a Lancaster pilot who carried the burden of a startling secret never revealed to the RAF or his crews.

Determined to serve his country and become a pilot, William Meyer leaves the comparative safety of his life in a ‘reserved’ occupation to volunteer for active service. After a training period in the USA and Scotland, he joins the RAF IX(B) Squadron flying Lancasters. He and his crew become known for their outstanding performance.

Introduced to the unique stresses and the strange duality of life in Bomber Command, William Meyer is caught between two worlds: the terrifying nights in the skies over Germany and ‘normal’ life off duty. And always, at the back of his mind, is the insistent thoughts of what tomorrow night might bring.

Luella Langevad tells the remarkable tale of how she traced William Meyer's time in the RAF, and how his startling secret was discovered. Follow her journey as she describes the unexpected results of this search in present day Germany, and the shock as a last poignant link to the past is discovered there.
