LYMPNE AIRFIELD HISTORY SOCIETY
We had hoped to have David Goldsmith with us for our July 12th meeting with a presentation on the record breaking and attempted flights to and from Lympne between the wars, but he has had to stay longer in the USA, and is unlikely to be back in time.
Tony Moor, author of Lympne Airfield at War and Peace, has agreed to step in to give us a presentation on 41 Squadron at Lympne in WW2. This was a Spitfire squadron who had been led by Douglas Bader earlier on and also had a certain Dutch Flight Lieutenant Bram van der Stok with them until he was shot down in 1942. He was one of the three to successfully escape from Stalag Luft 111 in the Great Escape.
David's presentation will now take place in two parts at our September and November meetings.
The meeting starts at 7.30pm in the East Bar of Lympne Castle. There is no charge, so please feel free to join in the celebration of our very own aviation history. Thanks once again to Rod and Richard at the castle.
