Bat­tle of Bri­tain wit­nesses wanted

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Remember When? -

DO YOU re­mem­ber see­ing a plane shot down dur­ing the Bat­tle of Bri­tain?

The Bat­tle of Bri­tain Mu­seum in Hawkinge is hop­ing to record peo­ple’s mem­o­ries of see­ing planes meet their end in 1940.

A spokesman at the mu­seum said that while mu­seum vol­un­teers had met many eye­wit­nesses in the past, they never took the op­por­tu­nity to record their mem­o­ries. They want to right that wrong and any­one who wit­nessed an air­craft be­ing shot down or crash­ing, ei­ther Bri­tish or Ger­man, wher­ever it may have been in the coun­try, is asked to make con­tact with David Brock­le­hurst, chair­man and his­to­rian at the mu­seum in Aero­drome Road.

The mu­seum is also on the hunt for an orig­i­nal An­der­son shel­ter for its planned 1940 Dig for Victory Gar­den.

Con­tact them at kent­bat­tle­of­bri­tain­mu­seum @bt in­ter­ or at the mu­seum on 01303 893140.
