RAF Balderton Commemorations


The museum in association with the RAF Balderton Research Group is proud to announce that it will be hosting a Reunion for surviving personnel and the families of former personnel who served at RAF Balderton from 1941 to 1954.

This event will take place on Sunday 8th April 2018 at the museum site here in eastern Nottinghamshire. In our Memorial Garden there will be a ceremonial dedication of a commemorative tree, and the laying of a piece of RAF Balderton’s runway, with a plaque dedicated to all those that served at RAF Balderton.

The event will also coincide with the launch of the latest book by the museum’s own Colin Savill; entitled “Station of Nations” the book will chart the history of RAF Balderton.

Invitations will be sent out to various special guests. Members are all welcome to join us as we meet to remember all those who served at this forgotten airfield.

More details will follow over the next few months.
