A Merry Christmas to all group followers and supporters

Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic and in light of the risks posed, the annual Remembrance Sunday March Past the Cenotaph will not take place this year. Many of us will not be able visit our normal places and memorials for our own acts of Remembrance, therefore our annual Remembrance Sunday visit to Botley Cemetery will also not take place this year. Botley has been our Annual pilgrimage to remember fallen aircrew for over 50 years, of the 580 servicemen buried there, 457 of them are airmen killed in aircraft crashes in Buckinghamshire and surrounding counties. Standing there on the day with detailed knowledge of the fate of hundreds of individuals, with hundreds of faces from our archives etched in your memory, makes it a most poignant and moving accession that will be sadly missed. Today at the 11th hour many of us will be alone with our thoughts, perhaps making them even stronger!
At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We remembered them.
