Act now to guarantee your space on the second of this year’s exclusive guided tours of the area that saw much of the aerial fighting during the Battle of Britain in 1940.
May’s tour was a huge success, and spaces on the second tour, scheduled for Saturday 7 September, are fast being snapped up.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust’s tours of ‘Hellfire Corner’ bring to life the part that this corner of Kent payed in the summer and autumn of 1940. They are popular tours, and as always it’s a case of ‘first come, first served’.
The 2013 tours will again include a visit to the Battle of Britain Museum at Hawkinge, with its extensive collection of memorabilia, and the village of Elham, which played a unique role during the Battle.
The tours are led by author and historian Geoff Simpson, a member of the RAF Historical Society and author of many texts on the Battle including “A Dictionary of the Battle of Britain”. Uniquely, they include lunch and afternoon tea with one of the Few. May’s tour saw Wing Commander Bob Foster, DFC, AE, who flew Hurricanes into action from Croydon airfield, entertaining the guests over lunch.
The tours offer enthusiasts an unbeatable opportunity to combine a great day out with the chance to learn more about the historic events of the Battle of Britain. They start, naturally, at the National Memorial to the Few at Capel-le-Ferne.
