I’m excited to announce that a memorial stone dedication for F/O Malcolm Ravenhill is happening on Friday 24th April 2020 at 12:00 in the village of Ightham, Kent. This is the latest RAF memorial stone to be unveiled by the Shoreham Aircraft Museum in Kent.
Thank you to everyone that has donated to the museum making the project possible. A massive thanks obviously goes to all involved with the process, particularly the passion and commitment of Geoff Nutkins and Doug Parry at the museum, and David Baldwin.
Unveiled in September 2005, the Battle of Britain monument in London is a fantastic tribute to everyone who took part in the battle, not just the airmen. The names of “The Few” are cast in bronze and Malcolm’s name can be seen.
Biggin Hill RAF Chapel of Remembrance
Malcolm’s name is listed on the memorial (reredos) in St George’s Royal Air Force Chapel of Remembrance at Biggin Hill, along with other members of 229 Squadron.
Edward VII School (Sheffield) Plaque
In 2000 the Battle of Britain Historical Society presented a plaque in memory of Malcolm Ravenhill to his former school, the King Edward VII in Sheffield. A ceremony was held, and the plaque is located in the school’s entrance hall, adjacent to the war memorial.
Sadly I don’t have any photographs of the plaque, but hope to find one soon…
