To the Midlands where there will be

Arboretum. In over 150 acres of trees and gardens,
where more than 50,000 trees have been planted so far,
nearly 300 memorials have been set up. This is where
one can reflect on the many wars, after World War II,
when lives have been sacrificed. Welcome, talk, transport
on the land train and tea included. Many and diverse are
the events and participants remembered: to name but a
few – The Berlin Airlift, the Boys’ Brigade, The Burma
Railway, the Commandos… Dinner, bed & breakfast at
the Copthorne Hotel, Merry Hill


Day 2 Sunday

Lots of time at RAF Cosford where there
is so much to see. The ‘War in the Air’ Collection has a
Spitfire and a Lincoln Bomber. There is a Comet and a
Gnat which belonged to the Red Arrows among the 70 or
so aircraft. The National Cold War Exhibition, opened in
2007 by the Princess Royal, is terrific too. Homeward
journey in the afternoon.
