On Thursday, the 17th of November, a group of 2nd Air Division Memorial Trust officers and friends met in the American Memorial Chapel at St. Paul’s for an annual service and Evensong. Among those in attendance were Chuck Walker, President of the 2nd Air Division Association and veteran pilot of the 700th Bomb Squadron, 445th Bomb Group. We were also honoured with the presence of Dick Robert, former 2nd Air Division Association President and veteran of the 453rd Bomb Group, our 2nd Air Division Memorial Trust Chair, Matthew Martin, and Trust Governor Andrew Hawker.
The service was a beautiful and fitting capstone event to a full week. Monday marked the 2nd Air Division Association’s Annual Governors’ Meeting held at County Hall. On Tuesday evening, the Biennial lecture presented Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles with his new book to a packed audience at the Assembly House, and on Wednesday we celebrated our Library’s 10th anniversary in the Forum!
