420 Squadron and the Royal Canadian Air Force in Lincolnshire
7 August 2012 19:00 to 22:00
To commemorate Lincolnshire’s connections with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire (AHL) is hosting a talk by Phil Bonner on Tuesday 7th August 2012, which is entitled “420 Squadron & the Royal Canadian Air Force in Lincolnshire”.
During World War II Lincolnshire was home to an ever changing assembly of airmen and women from across the world. At RAF Waddington 420 Squadron became the fourth RCAF bomber squadron to form overseas.
Phil Bonners talk is being held in the Nettleton Room at RAF Waddington on 7th August 2012 at 7pm, and it will mark the squadron’s transfer to 4 Group and a new base at Skipton-on-Swale. The talk will also chart the RCAF’s operations from Lincolnshire between December 1941 and August 1942.
Admission to the event will cost £5.00 per person (includes tea & coffee), with proceeds being donated to the ‘Flights for Life’ charity. Tickets must be booked in advance.
