Commemoration of the Nuremberg Raid - Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre
As a tribute to the almost 700 airmen who did not return from this raid, including some 252 from Lincolnshire, we held a school event day at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby.
There were 80 children taking part on 2nd April, from a school that had already been participating in the successful Arts Council England Museums and Schools Programme. The event included the planting of memorial crosses, each representing one of the county's fallen on the raid, by the children, followed by The Last Post played by an airman from RAF Coningsby.
Part of the Museums & Schools Programme funded by the Department for Education through Arts Council England.
