At last week’s evening meeting of the Pembroke Rotary Club held at the Helm , Pembroke Dock members were given an extremely interesting and informative talk by historian John Evans of the Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust.

John Highlighted many of the aviation personalities who contributed to the RAF’s story at Pembroke Dock over nearly 30 years. He illustrated with photographs of airmen and airwomen including Arthur ‘Bomber” Harris and highly decorated Sunderland pilot Les Baveystock, and those from many nations. John also recounted how the Sunderland Trust had developed heritage initiatives leading up to the opening of the town’s Heritage Centre by The Queen in 2014. The Sunderland Trust is one of the local charities which has benefitted considerably from the Rotary Raffle in recent years.

John was thanked by President Gavin Lloyd who commented on his wealth of information and his extreme commitment to the Trust, ensuring that the memories of aviation in Pembroke Dock are remembered.
