In celebration of 100 years of the Royal Air Force, the RAFA Branch at RAF St Mawgan held a special film night in aid of the Wings Appeal. What else can you show other than that classic of classics …. The Battle of Britain. Not quite 100 years old but a classic film made in 1965 with a massive budget and some of the air scenes have been used in many other films since.
The Lighthouse Cinema in Newquay was the location and some 200 revellers turned out to support the appeal. We were pleased to welcome Air Commodore John Bessell, who also hailed from Newquay, to give the main address along with main organiser Vice Chairman Paul Hedge and our Branch Chairman Steve Richards.
The evening kicked off with a glass of wine and a proper Cornish Pasty ! before all moved to Screen 1 for the parade of standards and the film.
An excellent event and thanks are due to Paul Hedge and his team, some £2300 was raised for the Wings Appeal. Per Ardua Ad Astra 🙂
