Ever since the end of WW2, Nutfield the home of RAF REDHILL, had not had a War Memorial
dedicated to the airmen who gave their lives flying from this Airstrip defending
our way of life. Mike Garwood and his team of researchers from Nutfield History
Group has put this right by finding out about the young airmen who flew from there
and their fighter aircraft.
This research led to the design and supply of the Memorial Plaque, which was cast
of Spitfire type aluminium in Australia. The group gained Ministry of Defence approval
for the use of the RAF crest and signed an official document to confirm the plaque
would be mounted in a safe, secure and permanent location.
