I am trying to locate the heirs of Arthur "Bomber" Harris of England.
In 1942 Bomber Harris was made commander of Bomber Command in England.
Air Marshall Harris was an important individual in the rise of air power and I
would really like to talk to any heirs of his.
Thanks

Four years later ?
I too was lokking for personal details of A.T.H. and found a few details in the R.A.F. biography.
Possible three marriages and two children.
regards !

My mother always maintained that Bomber Harris was related to her father George Richard Harris, possibly his cousin. So little seems to be known about him that we have found it impossible to find any proof whatsoever other than the fact that he looks very much like my grandfather.
