I'm pleased to say that the SIG has been to a model show this year! The newsletter below is a write up of the SMW 2021 display and the plans for next year.
I am collecting ideas for a display from members of the SIG. If you have a suggestion for the SMW 2022 display please comment on this blog post.
Issue 4 of the Eagle is ready!
Inside this bumper issues are articles on the Eurofighter, 1945 and SMW 2019,
The third issue of The Eagle is ready.
The main feature is some reference materials on the Lockheed Starfighter. For people who don’t follow us on Facebook, there is also an series of photo galleries showing the SIGs displays since Bolton at the start of 2019.
Issue two focuses on the Luftwaffe's response to D-Day. It is not to diminish the efforts and ultimate sacrifices made by Allied force but I felt it appropriate to recognise the role and sacrifice that the men of the Luftwaffe made. On the 75th anniversary the SIG would like to give thanks to all the Allied forces that made the liberty that we enjoy today possible. Lest We Forget.
I'd like to finish with a quote from The Right Honourable Theresa May MP, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom who delivered a poignant speech this morning in France.
"Here in Normandy, the names of those British men and women who lost their lives will forever sit across The Channel from their homeland. We'll always remember their courage and conviction. And to the veterans that are here today - I want to say the only two words I can: Thank you."
