Veterans who were based at RAF Witchford were remembered at the 115 squadron memorial.

Families and friends visited the former airfield, which is now Lancaster Way Business Park, dedicated to those who failed to return to Witchford from operations.

They attended a remembrance service at St Andrews Church, by Reverend Teresa Dixon, before laying a wreath at the memorial during a shorter service.

A buffet lunch was provided by the committee of Witchford Social club, followed by a visit to the RAF Witchford display of memorabilia.

It is dedicated to men and women who were based at RAF Witchford 115 squadron and 75 (N.Z.) squadron based at RAF Mepal during the Second World War.
