RAF display opens at Beccles museum
Flying history from the second world war is being brought back to life in a display at Beccles museum.
The exhibition, which will run for 30 days, includes dummies dressed in air force uniform, navigational instruments, medals and flying helmets.
The Mayor of Beccles, Brian Woodruff, opened the joint RAFA/RAF display at the Ballygate museum at 10am yesterday.
He was greeted by RAFA Beccles chairman Brian Vousden, museum curator Jenifer Mackintosh and officers from RAF Honington.
An escort of RAF Regiment was provided by RAF personnel and a tour of the exhibits was taken by the mayor and assembled guests.
Mr Woodruff commented on the excellent presentation and information provided and thanked the organisers for their hard work.
Mr Vousden reinstated the Beccles branch of RAFA - a welfare organisation supporting servicemen and ex-servicemen - three years ago and has seen membership grow from 12 to 66.
