Safer Summer Staycation

Silent tribute was paid on Sunday during a Battle of Britain service of thanksgiving and remembrance.

Organised by King’s Lynn and District branch of the RAFA, the service and wreath-laying ceremony was held in Lynn’s Tower Gardens and marked the 75th anniversary of the historic battle.

The service was conducted by the Rev Canon Christopher Ivory, of Lynn Minster, and Father Adrian Ling, rector of All Saints Church.

West Norfolk Mayor Colin Manning was among those who laid a wreath.

The parade included around 20 personnel from RAF Marham. A talk about the battle was given by Wing Commander Vic Stapley, president of Lynn RAFA.

There was no flypast as had been hoped, because one of the Lancaster aircraft had been damaged was unable to take to the skies.
