Tower Meeting March 2019

image105

  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.
