Celebrates 100 years of "The Goldstars" - aka 31 Squadron, one of the most fascinating squadrons of the Royal Air Force.
This is the story of the conversion and fitting out of three 30ft ISO steel shipping containers into the Goldstar Collection Centenary Exhibition.
The artefacts and memorabilia displayed feature a century of interest and information gathered from ex 31 Sqdn men and women representing 100 years of continuing service to the world.
The exhibition is sited at Niederrhein Weeze Airport (formerly RAF Laarbruch) - an expanding RAF Germany Museum.
Here we illustrate and explore a myriad of little-known, but very real, conflicts; from formation on the North West Frontier of India to Afghanistan, Syria (20th and 21st-century), through Burma/Japanese WW2 campaigns (Chindit and Kohima supply) to the Cold War in Europe and Middle Eastern theatres.
Be amazed, amused, aghast and entertained. This story is heroic, has pathos, and deserves your undivided attention.
Presented by Terry O'Halloran of Life Publications, Curator of the Museum and himself a 31 Sqdn veteran. Produced by Blow by Blow Productions for Life Publications Ltd and sold here with their permission. PRICE INCLUDES P & P.
From the mountains of Afghanistan to the jungles of Burma, and then the Cold War in Europe.....A squadron with an incredible century behind it.
