Blessed at last with a warm and sunny day, on Sunday 2nd June 2013, Shoreham was very proud and pleased to welcome some veterans of the Battle of Britain who served in the air and on the ground.
Squadron Leader Nigel Rose, Wing Commander Tom Neil DFC & Bar and Chief Technician Joe Roddis, delighted Museum visitors of all ages by signing personal items and recounting tales of their varying RAF experiences.
If you couldn’t make it on the day, we still have a small number of commemorative prints available for £37.50, including P&P. Each print is individually signed by our three veterans. If you would like to purchase a print, please call us on 01959 524416.
Another popular purchase was Joe’s splendid book written with author Mark Hillier, titled “In Support of the Few”, a diary of his long RAF career from early 1939 to 1965. It is recommended reading about one of the RAF’s forgotten heroes and proceeds from the sale of the book go towards helping to keep ‘The Grace Spitfire’ flying and to the Apuldram Centre, one of Joe’s favourite charities http://www.apuldram.org/
