LAC Kenny's early qualifications



F/Sgt Kenny, Bomb Aimer took part in the infamous Nürnberg Raid at the end of March 1944.........their second operation.
F/Sgt Kenny's grandaughter reports that.......... My Dad tells me Poppa told him that Nürnburg, on the 30/3/44, was the run that he just knew he wasn’t going to come home from and they were more than likely going to die and he decided to go and have fun with his mates and not be scared.
However, the crew returned safely.
