The Battle of Britain Historical Society is a registered charity and has over 1,000 members. Their aim is to uphold and perpetuate the memory of all involved with the Battle of Britain. It is thanks to the imagination and determination of the Society’s founder, Bill Bond MBE, that the London Monument exists today. Please visit their website for a hive of information on the Battle of Britain and consider becoming a member.
The Battle of Britain Monument in London is a superb monument to The Few – commemorating those people who took part in this vital battle of the Second World War. Their website provides information about the Battle of Britain, the airmen, who took part, the history and description of the Monument and related information. Visit the page dedicated to F/O Malcolm Ravenhill or read my own monument page.
The Shoreham Aircraft Museum was founded in 1978 by local enthusiasts, whose passion for the Battle of Britain period resulted in the establishment of a permanent display in 1988.
A fantastic museum to visit, and a wealth of information is available on their website. The RAF Museum in Hendon, London has proved invaluable to my research in the past. They also have another museum in Cosford.
The RAF Association is dedicated to supporting serving and former RAF personnel and their families. Whether it’s an injured airman fighting to get back onto his feet, a young daughter missing her parent away on overseas operations or a WWII veteran needing a shoulder to lean on, we are there to help. My original adverts asking for help in their “Air Mail” magazine proved invaluable to my research.
