Wings Appeal

42f Wings collecting
Saturday 19th September saw Air Cadets from 42F (King’s Lynn) Squadron Air Training Corps in the town assisting the local Royal Air Forces Association Branch members with the annual Wings Appeal street collection.

The shoppers gave generously to the cadets who undertook the task, as always, smartly, politely and with a smile on their faces.

Many people were keen to tell anecdotes of their Royal Air Force service or of wartime service. One lady, putting some change into the tin of a member of 42F Squadron’s civilian committee who was assisting with the collection, having apologised for donating what she described as ‘not much’ said “It’s in remembrance of my mother’s brother” and as she turned to walk away continued “They never did find him.”

Yes people do still ‘Give a little for those who gave so much.’
