Military History Tours          On Tour - Bomber Command (RAAF in the UK) 22 July 2013

  

This was our last day together as we left Salisbury heading towards London.

Our first stop was at the Brooklands Museum where most viewed the excellent range of cars and motor bikes and then moved onto the very good display of planes that included a Wellington Bomber that had crashed into Loch Ness during the War and recently recovered.

We left the Museum and made our way to Runnymead, the site of the signing of the Magna Carter in 1215. After our visit to the actual site, we moved to the Runnymead Memorial to those airmen who were lost but have no known grave. There are over 20,000 names on the panels with men and women from all the Commonwealth countries.

At the Memorial we conducted a small Service for all who were lost and particularly for Flight Lt Barrow, as we had his cousin, James Eglinton travelling with us. A moving moment indeed.

We arrived at our hotel in London at 1600, said goodbye to our driver, Gill, who had been an excellent driver and who had become a firm member of our tour group. We all will miss her.

The group went to the Skinners Arms Pub for a beer and dinner. A fine way to end such a successful tour.
