The Trust was pleased to welcome a number of high profile visitors to the site at Capel-le-Ferne over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Well known author and Battle of Britain historian Dilip Sarkar, no stranger to the clifftop Memorial, visited with Charlles Hewitt, managing director of publishers Pen and Sword, and Matthew Potts, from the company’s marketing department.
The Pen and Sword team was on site to discuss an exciting long-term project in partnership with the Trust which will be unveiled over the next few months.
Another welcome visitor was Peter Roberts, a volunteer and former Trustee with the Royal Australian Air Force Museum at Point Cook, Victoria, who came all the way to this corner of the UK with his wife Di.
Peter was in correspondence with Trustees and friends of the Trust during the pandemic about Australians who took part in the Battle of Britain, and was keen to visit as soon as he could. The visit cemented the association and the cooperation will continue as Peter expands his research.
