    Default Small RAF display I was asked to do

    Hi Guys, a friend of ours who runs the local British Legion and is actively involved with our local museum archive asked if we could help with a small RAF display to co-inside with the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

    Sharpe's Pottery Museum

    I am not a big RAF collector, but agreed to help out. So this morning Lez and I put this display together with items from our collection. We are pleased with the results.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Robin. It was a fun couple of hours putting it together.

    Another gent who is involved with the museum is bringing in a C type flying helmet and log book which belonged to a relative who was a "Tail end Charlie" (Rear Air Gunner) on Lancs. I am providing him with a glass head to display it on.

    We met up with another older gent who it turns out collected German daggers until the fakes get better in the 1970's. So I am going to see his collection.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade, brilliant display. A glowing tribute to the many who gave their lives and for those lucky enough survive to be with us today. Will never forget their courage.
    Well done, Steve.

    Thanks Steve and Steve.

    Never done a display in a museum before. It will be there for a month.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I have forgotten that I do have some other RAF items. So I may add a few more bits.

    Turns out there is a job vacancy at the museum...

    Cheers, Ade.
