FFHS - supporting family historians for over 40 years
GM at Royal Air Force Museum London 24 September 2016
The Royal Air Force Museum London 'tells the story of the people who moulded the world of aviation from the daredevil early aviators to wartime heroes and the thousands of ordinary Service men and women who have served in the RAF and whose contribution has shaped the world that we live in today'. The Halton Gallery was the venue for our General Meeting.
Following lunch, representatives of 20 member societies had the opportunity to hear Nina Hadaway, Curator of Documents speak about 'Family History at the RAF Museum'. She gave an interesting talk and answered a number of questions from members keen to find out more about their ancestors who had served with the RAF.
The business meeting in the afternoon gave members the opportunity to discuss current issues with members of the FFHS Executive Committee and seek the opinions of fellow officers from other member societies.
