Life Stories: Battle of Britain Memorial Flight

31 August 2019

RAF Stories Air Commodore Paul Godfrey

‘Life Stories’ is a series of talks by guest speakers, who will share their own unique experiences from their time in the Royal Air Force. 

The mission of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is to maintain these priceless artefacts of our national heritage in an airworthy condition, so that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight may  commemorate those who have fallen in the service of this country, promote the modern day Air Force and inspire the future generations.

Flown by regular serving RAF Aircrew, the Flight operates six Spitfires, two Hurricane Mk 2Cs, a Lancaster as well as a C47 Dakota and two Chipmunk aircraft.

Air Commodore Paul Godfrey spent three seasons with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, flying the Spitfire, Hurricane and Chipmunk aircraft. During this talk, Paul will share his knowledge of the BBMF and his most memorable experiences.

Paul's talk will take place Saturday 31 August at 2.00pm, places are free and can be booked now.

‘Life Stories’ forms part of the RAF Museum's RAF Stories project. Launched as part of the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme, RAF Stories is an online collection accessible to everyone to submit, share and explore stories of people’s personal connections to the RAF.

Further free Life Stories talks are scheduled at Cosford:

From Basra to Sydney - 14 September
True Colours - 12 October
