Visit today to Hawkinge RAF Museum and the Battle of Britain Memorial.
The museum is full of recovered pieces of aircraft that have crashed in the area during the war. Most of which have been researched and have details of the pilots involved and the circumstances of the crash. In other hangars there displays of uniforms and weapons relating to both wars as well as medals and biographies of pilots like Douglas Bader. Whilst the museum is a great place to visit what is a bit strange is that they don't allow you to take phones, cameras or bags into it. The signs say because of theft, I could understand not to allow bags but I would think they could allow camera without bags.
Second stop was the Battle of Britain Memorial, again another clever and well maintained site. Located at Capel Le Ferne, just up from Folkestone, the view across the channel was great, we could easily see Calais. It shows how important radar was as if the RAF had to rely on observations alone, fighters from Hawkinge and the like would have never had time to get airborne.
