Going the extra mile(s)

A Dutch Battle of Britain enthusiast is a happy man after his wife arranged for one of our airman figurines to be shipped over to the Netherlands as a gift from his wife.

Jadwiga Robijn got in touch with site manager Jules Gomez after trying to order one of the figurines – bronze effect scale models of the airman at the centre of the National Memorial of the Few – via our website shop.

The online store is not set up for overseas sales because of the unknown postal charges involved and so Jules stepped in to sort out the extra cost and arrange a courier to deliver the unique memento of the airman, pictured here, for Jadwiga’s husband Wim’s birthday.

A grateful Jadwiga pointed out that amidst the current pandemic, the alternative would have meant a possibly lengthy delay until UK borders reopen to overseas visitors so that they could pay another visit to the site to pick up one of the limited edition figurines for themselves.

Jadwiga also signed her lucky husband up as a Friend of the Few as another birthday treat. Joining the Friends online is easy – and has lots of benefits as well as bringing in vital income for the charity. Please consider doing that yourself!
