    Default Lashenden Air Warfare Museum

    I recently visited Lashenden Air Warfare Museum at Lashenden Airfield in Kent, southeast England.

    A few weeks before I had come across a very small memorial plaque in the Kent village of Westbere. The memorial is Dedicated to two RAF pilots who lost there lives in the skies above Kent during the long summer of 1940.

    As I was engrossed in the exhibits of the museum and reading the details of various aircraft remains I stumbled on Flying Officer Franciszek Gruszka

    This lead me to look for Pilot Officer John Bland and after a long search, I also found his details as well.

    When I took the photograph of the Memorial in Westbere that day I had little thought that I would then stumble on a museum that would put faces to those engraved names.

    I spent quite a bit of time there that day and will be visiting again once the world starts to return to normal following Covid-19.


    The museum is filled with an amazing wealth of exhibits, aircraft engines and parts all excavated from crash sites. And on a good summers day you may even see the two seat Spitfire MK IX 'Elizabeth' taking to the skies over Kent.

    The collection has British, German & American aircraft engines, as well as parts of the first Me109 to crash in England during World War 2. There is also a large section of fuselage from Me109 W/Nr 3737 the personnel aircraft of German “Ace” Werner Molders that blew up over Marden in 1940. There are also hundreds of parts of Spitfires, Hurricanes and American aircraft with the details of the pilots that flew them.

    Another main attraction of the museum is one of only 6 Fieseler Fi 103R4 Reichenberg Piloted V1 Flying Bomb which is a must see if you get the chance.

    I'd like to dedicate this post to Flying Officer Franciszek Gruszka & Pilot Officer John Bland and the 'FEW' who never returned home.
