Andrew Hewitt

Having been the proud nephew of my late uncle, who served as a Navigator during World War 2, flying from RAF Hemswell, I often listened to his accounts of the operations that he took part in. Although limited to child hood snap shots of memory, the subject has continued to fascinate me. Having lived in Lincolnshire for many years and having my families roots, on my fathers side, firmly planted in this great county, my interest has only grown and the thirst to find out more has never waned.

I feel that this memorial and associated aspects are extremely important, to not only commemorate the great effort and sacrifice that took place, but to celebrate this counties involvement in a very vital part of our country’s history.
