Amazing amount of research and organization went into this remarkable collection of photos, personal accounts, aircraft parts, paintings, etc. related to those who served at RAF Witchford. They deserve to be honored and remembered.

This small museum is evidently a tribute to the numerous brave airmen who flew Lancasters and other aircraft out of RAF Witchford during WW2. I found it intensely moving. Without this little museum, these men would be forgotten. Many of them gave their lives, often...More
