Great photo's and thanks for sharing them.
You would have thought someone would have washed that bird shit of his head by now though.
Did you go to Hawkinge too? It's a brilliant museum...but the fact photography is banned (Due to the lame excuse, 'to stop thefts', really miff's me off.
I seriously considered violating that little sign "Please Do Not Climb..." with a dishcloth in my hand but thought better of it. Guest to the country and all.
Yup, went to Hawkinge, overladen with details and photo-ban most frustrating !
And Manston and Tangmere!
More to follow...
May I suggest you start a BoB thread on your travels SB ... Maybe call it 'Walking in the footsteps of The Few'
Where out and about on family business I took some time out to stop at Capel Le Ferne... Nice place if you get a few spare minutes, so wanted to show you all them...
Looks like a lovely memorial site. Thanks for sharing Tom.
I agree with Wendy. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks Wendy & Tom so just adding a few more...
We revisted the Capel-le-Ferne for the new memorial unveiled on Friday.
From my last visit:
We went today and the memorial site is undergoing a million pound plus redevelopment and having a new state of the art visitors centre built with a viewing platform and a rather splendid RAF Roundel on the roof. It's due to open for the 75th anniversary of the BoB in 2015. It will be called the wing and apparently will be the same shape of the Spitfires wings.
Some not very good Artist Impressions in this link: http://www.battleofbritainmemorial.org/the-wing/
Jacob enjoyed his first WW2 visit (should have been Dunkirk really) although Andrea said it was wet, cold, hungary.....
I just hope he doesn't want to join the RAF now.
