How would you like a special bond with one of the men who flew to preserve the Freedom of this country in 1940? We offer a unique opportunity for supporters to create that bond by sponsoring one of the names on the Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial Wall here at Capel-le-Ferne.
The wall is named in tribute to the late Air Chief Marshal Sir Christopher Foxley-Norris, a Hurricane fighter pilot in 1940. He was the first President of the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust and, together with Lady Foxley-Norris, provided the funds that allowed plans for the wall to go ahead.
The wall lists the names of all the aircrew known to have flown with a recognised squadron during the Battle of Britain, which took place between 10 July and 31 October 1940 – just under 3,000 men in total. You can sponsor one of those names for a donation of just £40.
Sponsors currently receive a commemorative folder containing a certificate marking their donation and a copy of their chosen airman’s entry in Men of the Battle of Britain, the recognised guide to the men who took part in the RAF’s critical defence of these shores.
When purchasing this product please state in the comments box if you have a particular name you would like to sponsor. Once your order is received it will be forwarded to the Trust Secretary for completion.
