Thursday 18th January 18.30 – 21.30
The Victoria Cross is the highest decoration of the British military honours. and is awarded for valour “in the presence of the enemy”. Instigated in 1856, it was first awarded to a military airman in May 1915. During World War Two 23 Victoria Crosses were awarded to bomber aircrew. Seven of these recipients took off from airfields in Lincolnshire and two of the VCs were awarded during the period of the Battle of Britain. Busts of three of these aircrew are on display in the Centre.
Phil Bonner from Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire will be telling their stories and the acts of gallantry that led to the awards.
The evening starts with a delicious hot buffet supper in The Hub Café at 18.30.
