RAF Stories Talks - Peter Ramrayka

5 December 2018

Join us at Cosford for the fourth in a series of talks which form part of the Museum's RAF Stories project.

RAF Stories Peter Ramrayka
Date: Wednesday 5 December 2018
Time: 7.00pm - 8.00pm
Tickets: Free, but need to be booked in advance

Peter Ramrayka was born in what was then colonial British Guiana (now Guyana). The grandson of indentured Indian labourers, he was brought up to believe that, despite his Indian cultural heritage, Britain was, in fact, the 'Mother Country'.

With a steely ambition to become a lawyer, he travelled to England in 1961. He joined the Royal Air Force as an option to both work and study. This led to successful careers and endeavours: the National Health Service; the Magistracy; political activist; Mission Director of a flying teaching eye hospital and much more.

The RAF Stories series of talks form 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. In the RAF’s 100th year, the project will inspire the public to reveal the service’s influence on their lives.

Visit www.rafstories.org to explore some of the fantastic stories collected so far and to find out how you can share your story.  To contact the RAF Stories team please email us.
