Website RAF Museum
Details This year, wing your way over to the Royal Air Force Museum for a free, fun day out.
The Royal Air Force Museum is Britain’s only national Museum dedicated wholly to aviation.  With a world-class collection and display of aircraft, integrated with special exhibitions, films, interactives, artwork, engines, missiles, photographs, uniforms, medals and research and education facilities, the Museum takes an innovative approach while keeping with tradition.
While offering a detailed insight into aviation technology, it also focuses on the people who made it possible – from daredevil early aviators, through wartime heroes, to the thousands of ordinary Service men and women whose contribution shapes the world we live in today.
The Museum occupies two public sites at London, and Cosford, Shropshire. Each site offers a unique experience to the visitor and the exhibits compliment each other in terms of the history they project. Both Museums tell the story of aviation from the early bi-planes to the new strike-jets.
The London site is situated on what used to be RAF Hendon. It holds over 100 aircraft in 5 aircraft themed aircraft hall. Other exhibits include missiles, paintings, film shows, medals and uniforms. Be sure to see the Milestones of Flight gallery, with its suspended aircraft, interactive plinths and time-line wall.
The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, is acknowledged as one of the top public attractions in the Midlands. The Visitor Centre, which includes a restaurant and souvenir shop, is a perfect take-off point for a tour of the Museum, including the wartime hangars in which many of the aircraft are housed - a number of them the only remaining examples in the world.
The magnificent National Cold War Exhibition, a stunning new hall focusing on the Cold War story from national, international and social/political as well as cultural perspectives.  This permanent exhibition hall tells the exciting story of the Cold War years with exhibits including suspended aircraft, military tanks, interactives, films, and more. Learn about what life was like behind the iron curtain!
We also hold exciting events at both sites. This year events include Veterans day, D-Day celebrations, Battle of Britain weekend and a Roald Dahl birthday weekend.

Imperial War Museum Duxford
Website Duxford
In February 1940 one of the heroes of the Second World War was posted to No.19 Squadron at Duxford. Flying Officer Douglas Bader had lost his legs in an air crash several years earlier and had been discharged from the RAF. Determined to serve his country in the way he knew best, he badgered the RAF until he was allowed to fly again. He would not permit his artificial limbs to deter him and soon showed himself to be a courageous pilot and a fine leader.
By June 1940 Belgium, Holland and France had fallen to the German forces and the conquest of Britain was their next objective. Duxford was placed in a high state of readiness and to create space for additional units at Duxford, 19 Squadron moved to nearby Fowlmere. Then came the start of Hitler's attempt to dominate the skies over Britain as a prelude to the subjugation of Britain.

The period of intense air fighting that followed has become known as the Battle of Britain. Duxford's first Hurricanes arrived in July with the formation of No.310 Squadron, made up of Czechoslovakian pilots who had escaped from France. At the end of August the Air Officer Commanding 12 Group, Air-Vice Marshal Trafford Leigh-Mallory, ordered the Hurricanes of 242 Squadron, now commanded by Douglas Bader, down from Coltishall to join 19 and 310 Squadrons on daily standby at Duxford. Leigh-Mallory was impressed with the performance of 19 and 310 Squadrons and authorised Bader to lead 242, 19 and 310 operating together as a Wing. On 9 September the Duxford squadrons successfully intercepted and turned back a large force of German bombers before they reached their target. On the strength of this two more squadrons were added to the Wing, No.302 (Polish) Squadron with Hurricanes, and the Spitfires of No.611 Auxiliary Squadron which had mobilised at Duxford a year before.
Every day some sixty Spitfires and Hurricanes were dispersed around Duxford and Fowlmere. Bader's 'Big Wing', now known more formally as 12 Group Wing, was ready for action by 15 September 1940, which became known as 'Battle of Britain Day'. On this historic day they twice took to the air to repulse Luftwaffe attacks aimed at London. RAF fighter Command was successful, the threat of invasion passed and Duxford's squadrons had played a vital role in the victory.

Donald McGill Museum - the king of cartoon style saucy postcards
Website Donald McGill Museum
Details Our museum pays homage to Donald McGill, who spent his life creating comic artworks for the then thriving postcard industry

We are located at 15 Union Street, Ryde Isle of Wight PO33 2DU.

In the early 1930's cartoon style saucy postcards became widespread and at the peak of their popularity the sale of saucy postcards reached a massive 16 million a year. They were often tacky in nature making use of innuendo and traditionally featured stereotypical characters such as priests, large ladies and put-upon husbands in the same vein as the Carry On films.

In the early 1950's, the newly elected Conservative government were concerned at the apparent deterioration of morals in Britain and decided on a crackdown on these postcards. The main target on their hit list was the renowned postcard artist Donald McGill. In the more liberal 1960's the saucy postcard was revived and became to be considered, by some, as an art form.

The demise of the saucy postcard occurred during the 1970's and 1980's, the quality of the artwork and humour started to deteriorate with changing attitudes towards the cards content.

Despite the decline in popularity of postcards that are overtly saucy, postcards continue to be a significant economic and cultural aspect of British seaside tourism. Sold by newsagents and street vendors as well as by specialist souvenir shops. Modern seaside postcards often feature multiple depiction's of the resort in unusually favourable weather conditions. These continuously draw tourist to the seaside. The use of saturated colour and a general departure from realism have made the postcards of the later twentieth century become collected and desired by undiscriminating taste.

Original postcards are now highly sought after and rare examples can command very high prices at auction.

Donald created over 12,000 postcards from 1904 till his death in 1962.
