How Nottinghamshire Remembers Aviation

619 squadron

During the summer we have been working with the Nottinghamshire County Council to produce some follow-up material to the two Aviation Memorial booklets that we co-produced with them a few years ago.

This time we agreed on a series of short video interviews that will aim to highlight the more than twenty (20) aviation memorials that can be found right across the county. The first five (5) of these videos are now hosted on YouTube and links to them can be found below.

Providing there is sufficient interest in these short video films we hope to visit and record further interviews at other memorial locations around the county. To support this aim we hope that you might be able to feature these interviews in your publications and on your website.

The first five videos feature memorial locations that reflect the international diversity of personnel who are remembered across the county. Nottinghamshire was once a location that trained personnel from Australia, Canada, Poland, New Zealand, Rhodesia, South Africa, the USA and from all around Great Britain; and also many operational squadrons and base. Most of those countries are represented in these first videos – please help us to remember the sacrifices those people made.
