Welcome to the



We are now open every Saturday and Sunday.

Opening times 10am - 5pm (Last admission 4.30pm)

The Trustees are pleased to announce the appointment of Melvyn Wicks (right) as the new Museum Curator, following David Campbell's decision to stand down having guided the Museum through its recent structural changes. Melvyn, best noted for his extensive knowledge of the 354th Fighter Group, will bring a wealth of practical experience with him having been an active member of the Museum for many years. He is also appointed as a Trustee.

The Trustees also expressed thanks to David for overseeing and ensuring the implementation of the Museum's operational changes. He will, however, continue to work as a volunteer.

The pair are seen here (together with David's new minder !) enjoying the sunshine during the Combined Ops weekend.


On Saturday 24th September Sonja Bailey and her son Thomas will be walking 7.5 miles to raise money for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Charity. We wish them every success.
