Remembrance Day

adrianspicWe will remember them

From John Lilley, CEO The People’s Mosquito:

“As the clock strikes 11am on Remembrance Day, our Team’s thoughts and prayers will be focused on the fallen – those brave servicemen and women from all the wars and conflicts in which our armed forces have served.

Particularly poignant will be to ‘Remember’ those aircrews lost whilst serving on the D.H. 98 Mosquito.  Our project is to restore a Mosquito to flight status for the UK public as a flying memorial to those aircrews.

As a registered Charity no.1165903 this is a unique British project to restore an iconic British aircraft, created by British engineering excellence, one that contributed enormously towards winning World War 2″

  1. Lasham Airfield, in Hampshire (now the largest gliding club in the world) was a WW2 base for several Squadrons including 107, 305 (Polish Air Force) and 613 (City of Manchester) who all flew Mosquitos.
    We hold a very short service at our memorial by the main entrance on Remembrance Day at 11 o’clock where wreaths and crosses are laid, followed by the two minute silence. 115 men and women were lost flying from Lasham in the two years it was operational. A history of the airfield is in the clubhouse corridor. Everyone is welcome to visit
