Chattie Chu Chu

Let me introduce you to Chattie Chu Chu, my Singer Le Mans 9 special, which is a similar model to the one my father, Bryan Wild, bought towards the end of the second world war, when he was a night-fighter pilot with 25 Squadron, based at Castle Camps in Cambridgeshire.

This is the car in which I will be visiting all of the airfields he landed at during the war – nearly 60 of them, raising money for the RAF Benevolent Fund as I go, together with a couple of other charities.  This commemorative project will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the war, and I am writing a book  which will use the airfields to tell the story of how the RAF developed into a force that was crucial in winning the war.

I am new to blogging, so forgive any blips as I get under way. A link to my fundraising page will appear shortly.

I do hope you will follow me.

    Hi Liz,
    Somewhere on your website, think that there is a mention of RAF Valley in Anglesey.
    Not quite sure how to say this but my wife’s father was there in April 1941.
    Give us a bell when you have a spare Mo. SOC old fogey near Heathrow.
