My partner and I spent a fascinating morning at the Memorial Room at Linton-On-Ouse, in the company of Alan Mawby and Dick Arthurs.
The Memorial Room is used to display information and artefacts relating to the history of RAF Linton-On-Ouse and the squadron’s that were based there; it is open to the public (by appointment only).
There were a couple of display cabinets containing squadron related documents and photographs and we were also shown the database that is being created recording the squadron’s losses, along with various folders containing additional information about the squadron.
Our thanks go to Alan and Dick for spending their time with us during the visit.
Whilst we were in the area, we also visited Beningbrough Hall, which was utilised to accommodate NCO aircrew during the war.
There is a small display room entitled “Beningbrough at War” which contains the “Empty Bed” exhibit (depicting the empty bed of AH Stroud following the loss of Halifax L9560)
