A NEW PIECE OF LOCAL HERITAGE

 

Today was the final chance to photograph our Knight of the Skies, from Lincoln Knights' Trail, before he moves to his 'forever home' at the International Bomber Command Centre.

Thanks to the Newark Advertiser for coming along. They were keen to spot some of the amazing, hidden visual ‘secrets’, like the last Dambuster's signature, or the initials of Bomber Command veterans etched into the poppies, and the sword that has been fabricated by us at GAME to look like the spire at the IBCC.

The Knight sold for a record-breaking £15,000 last weekend and is being hosted at GAME Engineering this week. It was jointly purchased by GAME and Caroline Wood (niece of Sqn Ldr John 'Mitch' Mitchell who was a hero of the first RAF mission, and died aged 98). It will be donated to the IBCC in Memory of Mitch and Edna Graves (Land Army girl and ATS driver).
