Ken Rusby who we met at Crof talked to us at Croft about his Dad who lost his life in a Albemile crash in WW2 , he was born three months later, he has don a lot of research into the crash and was chuffed to bits that we arranged to have a plaque fitted to the engine frame in memory of his Dad and crew mates that lost there lives. After the very touching speech he made he then brought out an actual Bristol Hercules Cylinder from his Dads crashed plane, To see him stood there with that cylinder against the 216  just makes the long hours of work worth while.

The Following day after tidying up after the BBQ we decided to invite Mike Hemmingway to remove two old Mags from a scrap 264, after a couple of hours he was chuffed to bits with his afternoons work.
