Our Society is working with the Imperial War Museum War and Conflict - Subject Specialist Network. We first published our research on-line on 8th May 2020 to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of "Victory in Europe" celebrations. Our planned public events have fallen victim to Covid-19.
Our records of individuals will include several people whose names are absent from Parish Memorials.
We welcome your own or family stories to include in the records covering WW2 in the Parishes of Lynsted with Kingsdown, Teynham, Newnham, Doddington, Wychling, Norton, Luddenham, Oare (these are the Parishes of the Ecclesiastical Parish of Kingsdown and Creekside).
Contact: email - email@example.com or call 522842 (Lis Heriz-Smith).

Operations as a pilot with 56 Sqdn, No 11 Group, Fighter Command, RAF in GB, 6/1940-8/1940 including Battle of Britain. These are lengthy interviews but definitely worth it for the insights they offer of the Battle of Britain and the experience of pilot officers.

Imperial War Museum Animation: This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and through the War and Conflict Subject Specialist Network we are retelling extraordinary stories of the summer of 1940. In the first of four short animations we hear the vivid recollections of a British pilot, which have been brought to life by the creative teams at Squeaky Pedal and FRWLx. (2 minutes duration)
