Lincolnshire Bomber County Memorial Appeal
Written by Ed Wellman on 11th June 2013
The Lincolnshire Aviation Centre in East Kirkby hosted a launch evening on Thursday 30th May for the Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial Appeal. Siren 107.3’s Ed Wellman was at the event which took place in the main aircraft hangar under the wings of the Lancaster, Just Jane.
It is hoped that the memorial that is to be constructed alongside a visitor and education centre at Canwick Hill, will be completed by May 2015, to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War 2.
Ed describes the event, and it’s history, and is joined by trustees of the project, supporters and a host of people with a connection to Bomber County, including World War 2 veteran Cyril Peters.
