The Pathfinder Memorial Weekend was held on 15-16th August. It is an annual event whereby Pathfinders war veterans, who fought in World War II are invited to RAF Wyton.  We were lucky enough to have 13 Pathfinders join us this year.

The day entailed a reception at the Sergeant’s Mess to reunite families, then a church service, dinner and a fly past.

Chris Thurling at the RAF Wyton invited us to set up a stand to show our Wellington and Mosquito findings that had crashed into the fields at Glebe Farm.
