Having taken Voluntary Redundancy after 30 years in the Civil Service in London, I have recently returned from four years living in Spain, moving to Bomber County. I have had a lifelong interest in aviation history, the RAF and Bomber Command in particular. I have previously volunteered in my spare time at the RAF Museum, Hendon. This involved conservation work on their Lancaster, editing and producing the Museum’s Society of Friends’ newsletter and being a member of the Society of Friends’ General Purposes and Executive Committees. Last year I was able to fulfil an ambition of a life time when I had the great privilege of flying on board the Canadian Lancaster for an hours flight when the aircraft was in UK; flying around Lincolnshire, taking off and landing back at Humberside Airport. I hope to be able to assist the IBCC in any way that I can and look forward to being involved.
