Note from Joyce Radley to Peggy Gye about an over 60s visit to Lyneham

It’s about a visit that the over 60s made to Lyneham in 1972 but goes on, ‘I know it is present day – but it may prove interesting in later years.

Let’s start with the aircraft behind our Lavington ‘over 60s’. It looks to be a De Havilland Comet. Lyneham certainly had comets. One of them lasted as ‘gate guard’ until the airfield’s closure.

Now the people. We need help naming them so let’s do some zooms.
