On Sunday, 16th September, some 30 Museum volunteers attended the annual Battle of Britain commemoration service in St Andrew’s Church, Tangmere, and afterwards enjoyed the traditional buffet lunch at the Museum. We were delighted to be joined at lunch by Gwen Duke who was visiting us for the first time since husband Neville’s death on 7th April. David and Marian Brooker were also with us to deliver a Hunter model bequeathed to the Museum by the late Mrs Jean Bullen. This magnificent piece of work was a gift to her husband, Squadron Leader Frank Bullen, from the Hawker Aircraft Company in recognition of his outstanding service as Chief Production Test Pilot between 1949 and 1960 and represents a very welcome addition to our collection.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
