Caribbean RAF Volunteers on display at the RAF Museum02.05.2014

Here are some views of the ‘Pilots of the Caribbean’ exhibit currently housed at the RAF Museum’s site in Hendon, north London. In May, the exhibit will be moved to the Museum’s Cosford┬ásite, where it will be permanently wall-mounted.

The driving force behind this effort to recognise the contribution of Caribbean peoples to the fight against Nazism was Peter Devitt, the Assistant Curator at the Museum. Peter very kindly reached out to me and others and allowed us to make our individual contributions to the exhibition.

Many people, young and old, including a number of diplomats and majors, have already viewed this display. The memory of our brave Caribbean airmen has been preserved and is now being passed along.
