As usual, I nip upstairs after having a coffee in the 'NAAFI' kaff, to meander around the mini-museum here.
This airfield was home to squadron 12 and squadron 626 of Bomber Command during the 1943-1945 period of WW2. I always think of the many hundreds of young men, over 1000 aircrew, who flew out of here and never made it back. What a huge waste of life and the subsequent heartbreak for thousands more who loved these brave lads.
My somewhat sepulchral commentary is poor and the video is very amateur; forgive me for that.
A week or so back some low-life scum removed the two bronze plaques of the two squadrons from the memorial at the entrance to this airfield. All of us in the Friends of Wickenby Museum and Airfield were thoroughly sickened by this damnable theft. To the thieving toe-rags who stole these plaques for scrap I hope you can sleep well. If you never wake up again then that would be just reward for your deplorable action last week!
