Bomber Command to visit Clevedon

A WORLD War Two Bomber Command crew will visit Clevedon to raise money for the Bomber Command Memorial Fund.

The seven veterans, who together flew 250 bombing operations against the enemy, will meet the public, share their memories and sign books, prints and memorabilia.

On May 15, historian Steve Darlow, accompanied by the veterans, will give an illustrated lecture on the role Bomber Command had in defeating V1 flying bombs. This will take place at the Walton Park Hotel in Wellington Terrace at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced �7.50, are available from Clevedon Pier.

On May 16 between 4-8pm, visitors to Clevedon Pier will have the chance to meet the veterans, where they will sign memorabilia in return for a donation toward the memorial fund. Books and prints will also be available to buy. For more details call the pier on 01275 878846.

The fund will help pay for a memorial which is currently being constructed in London’s Green Park and will commemorate the 55,573 airmen killed while serving with Bomber Command during World War Two.
