      Thank you for visiting and taking the time to link up and comment.

      They were an immense help during world War Two, many of the them were volunteers. There were many women pilots among their ranks.

    1. I would wait until spring as it tends to get very wet and boggy at All Saints in the winter.

  3. I really like this photo. The angle you've taken this makes it seem more poignant somehow.
