Over 100 people attended Brenzett aeronautical museum for the unveiling of a memorial to commemorate a World War Two airfield formally based at the site.
The memorial was organise
d by the Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust, the charity aims to erect a large number of similar memorials across the country to preserve the memory of these valued heritage sites.
The museum also hosted a reunion of Land Army veterans who enjoyed a special open air lunch whilst being entertained with wartime melodies.
The museum features a collection of unique wartime equipment and remains recovered from aircraft crash sites and memorabilia collected and donated to the Museum since its formation in 1972.
Since those early days voluntary members have attempted to improve the range of exhibits to embrace many aspects of the war. We are an Independent Charitable Trust dedicated to the memory of those living or dead, friend or foe, who served their country during wartime.
The Exhibition is located within the original buildings used as a Hostel for the Women’s Land Army during the war, and part of the Exhibition is devoted to those ladies – some of their graffiti is still evident today!
