Battle of Britain Airfields Commemorated

The Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust, together with volunteers from the Kent Battle of Britain Museum and four members of 'The Few', unveiled an airfield marker at the Kent Battle of Britain Museum at Hawkinge on Saturday 11th July 2015. The marker is dedicated to all units and personnel that served at this hugely important Battle of Britain airfield. We were very pleased to witness an excellent Spitfire display from the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar Ltd shortly after the unveiling, a fitting tribute.

The previous day, ABCT also unveiled a plaque commemorating Lympne airfield at The County Members Pub, Lympne. Michael Stanford-Tuck, son of the decorated Battle of Britain pilot, Robert Stanford-Tuck, helped us with the unveiling at this very significant Battle of Britain airfield.

ABCT would like to thank everyone involved in the organisation of this very successful weekend as well as everyone who attended.
