July has been a busy month for the 'Mob' with Busters Memorial unveiling at RAF Waddington on the 16th and what a lovely, if not sad day it was, contacts renewed and new ones started. The memorial looked amazing and its all down to the work of the stonemasons, and Scott Etheridge who helped bring it together, not forgetting local Councillor Stuart, who helped invite local guests (both human and canine)! Busters ashes have been placed inside along with one of his favourite toys as was revealed after the event and the story of how Buster 'gained' his favourite toy, was shown as the top story of the day by BBC Look North. Whilst at RAF Waddington we visited the local cemetery to pay our respects at the gravesides of three of the crew of the next memorial project, the Vulcan Bomber Crash of 1956. We had hoped to place a Vulcan bomber style memorial at Heathrow, but sadly we are allowed only a small plaque, so we hope to now work with the team at RAF Waddington and place a memorial in their garden of remembrance. We have also been busy tracking down contacts at Bucks Country Parks for the Maple & Poppy Tree Totem for the Canadian Forestry Corps. London's Heathrow Airport Chaplains team have also been in touch with us about the October event for the Vulcan memorial project. Also Manufacturers for some of our projects and many more. We also have the #PoppyPaw pin, back in stock, please don't hang around and order before they go, they flew off the shelves last time.
