Ridlington Village Hall

A one hour illustrated talk by Retired Air Vice Marshall Paul Robinson,

Paul flew Harriers in Germany in the Cold War and served in a number of senior appointments at home and abroad including RAF Wittering before settling in Lincolnshire. He volunteered at the Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial Trust Centre in 2012 of which he is a Trustee.

58,000 young men and women of Bomber Command – 60% of total RAF losses were killed taking the war to Nazi Germany. Their sacrifice is now remembered at Lincoln’s International Bomber Command Centre.

Paul will outline Bomber Command’s history and discuss its impact during the Second World War, highlighting the skill, achievements and heroism of its air and ground crews. And how important it is for the nation to have a fitting memorial to commemorate their sacrifice, and recognise the suffering experienced by both sides of the conflict. He will  then describe the Trust’s project and answer any questions.

Tickets £10 pp  includes a glass of wine & nibbles, all money goes to the Trust.
