Our President welcomed Elizabeth Halls who gave a talk about 'Where They Served'. Elizabeth undertook a personal commemorative tour and fundraising project in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund, in memory of her father Bryan Wild who was a night fighter pilot in the Second World War. In 2015 she toured the 60 airfields where he landed in a 1935 Singer Le Mans 9 Sports Car, almost identical to the car her father owned while serving with 25 Squadron in Cambridge. Elizabeth helped us to understand what it was like to serve in the RAF at that time and it was a wonderful tribute to her father and his colleagues, who sadly unlike him, did not survive the war. Claire Burton gave the vote of thanks.
