Lympne Airfield History Society Latest News

 East Bar of Lympne Castle on Tuesday 14th July at 7.30pm.
A presentation about the life of record breaking aviatrix, Jean Batten will be made by John Simpson at our July 14th meeting at Lympne Castle. No stranger to Lympne Airfield, Jean Batten made several record breaking attempts to fly from Lympne to Australia and later New Zealand. The County Members was her chosen over night accommodation on more than one occasion, as our copy of the visitor’s book shows us. Lympne was also a preferred airfield for flights back to the UK, as well as pleasure trips to the continent
This fascinating life story is full of life threatening incidents and mysteries from beginning to end. As famous as Amy Johnson (another Lympne aviator) in the 1930’s, Jean Batten is less well known today, but in her own way just as interesting.
We will also feature the latest news and updates on our discoveries, investigations, memorial name collation and the airfield plaque unveiling ceremony at the County Members on July 10th.
Our meeting are open to all, so please come along to the East Bar of Lympne Castle on Tuesday 14th July at 7.30pm.
