RAF BIRCHAM MUSEUM OPEN DAYS FOR 2023
HENGRAVE LANCASTER PROJECT
Below is the the second and latest newsletter from the Hengrave Lancaster project. You will see there is a plea for help in funding towards the end. This project has been on the go, on and off, since 2011 and was reported in our 2011/12 newsletter (pages 27 & 28) that year. Following on from many refusals to dig the site, because it remains a 'War Grave', the members of the committee involved are determined to erect a memorial near the site.
A new film called Lancaster was released in June 2022, see details below. We hope you managed to see it!
"Would you like to buy this book?"
The biography of Sergeant James Ward, VC.
Some years ago, Robert Moore seemed close to publishing his biography of Jimmy Ward, after 35 years of researching the man from Wanganui. Ward was awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery for crawling out onto the wing of a 75(NZ) Squadron Wellington bomber at night over Holland to attempt to extinguish a fire that could have resulted in the crashing of the aircraft.
Now, with the awesome help of a team of dedicated and learned assistants, the book is near printing/publication. The printing of any book is fraught with the dilemma of 'how many' to order due to costs and how many will sell world wide. Cost is yet to be settled per book, but there will be hard cover and soft cover versions.
Book launches are starting to be arranged for the author both in New Zealand and England. So, in order to gauge interest for Bob's book and if you would like to buy a copy, please advise me you are interested with a quick reply below, with quantity and if hard or soft cover.

THE RIBBON OF REMEMBRANCE - IBCC (International Bomber Command Centre)
You are invited to dedicate an engraved paving stone to commemorate your relative, ancestor or friend. The Ribbon of Remembrance will provide a central and personal focal point for visitors to the IBCC and ensure that those who served or supported the Command’s operations are remembered and honoured, whether lost during the war or since.
This will be built to frame the Memorial Avenue that connects the Chadwick Centre to the Spire Memorial and Walls of Names at the new International Bomber Command Centre, which is opening on the 30th January 2018.
Created out of Yorkstone Scoutmoor stones, this highly durable stone is cut to 65mm and is available in a variety of sizes. The colours vary from each stone; from blue grey to buff brown so no two stones are the same.
To pay for your Memorial Stone online, please email email@example.com or call 01778 421420
