"Never was so much owed by so many to so few"
Lincolnshire is proud of its strong connections to the Royal Air Force, being the home of the RAF and also home to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight which is based at RAF Coningsby.
The City of Lincoln is also proud of its own strong links with the RAF, having RAF Waddington based just south of the City and RAF Scampton, the home of the famous Dambusters, based just north of the City, both bases being granted the honour of the Freedom of the City. Also we have the International Bomber Command Memorial & Centre overlooking the City on its southern edge which commemorates Bomber Command, this being ‘Bomber County’.
The ringing took place with social distancing observed and all the ringers wearing face coverings.
