A reduced charge to join one of the Trust’s popular tours of sites in east Kent linked with the Battle of Britain.
Friends receive an annual magazine, 1940, which is published each spring, along with other ad hoc newsletters.
The 2014 edition of 1940 includes Craig Brandon’s moving account of the short life of Sergeant Brian Kirk, who fought in the Battle of Britain with No 74 Squadron. Philip Curtis explains why those who claim that a Palestinian flew with No 1 Squadron are wrong, while Geoff Simpson tells the story of Air Vice-Marshal Douglas Evill, Senior Air Staff Officer to Air Chief Marshal Dowding at Bentley Priory
This glossy, A5 publication is edited by Trustee Geoff Simpson, a well-respected Battle of Britain author and historian.
