Friday 1-3-19

A group of 14 serving personnel from RAF Mildenhall, including 2 LT/COLS, a couple of Majors, and pilots from both KC135 a/c and Ospreys, utilized our site for the morning.


Whilst on the tour of the control tower, we were invited to attend an impromptu meeting with the group!  It was an honour being requested to stay, and interesting to say the least! This group photo, in all the years of the memorials existence, within its curtelege is the first! 

The remarks in the visitor’s book makes it all worthwhile; “Thanks for preserving our history”, “A lovely day, thank you”, “Awesome experience, “Fantastic, thank you”.

Tower Meeting March 2019


  It is not very often you can say you have met a real life hero, but 

Len Manning is one.  He was telling us how he bailed out of a Lancaster Bomber over France in WWII, and what happened while on the run from the Germans.  And then he told us about the day he met the pilot who shot him down!  What an amazing guy.  

Here he is with Tower Chairman, Graham Sage.  


 Here is Len, in his RAF Uniform, during World War II.
