  1. Quite a few years ago I donated to the museum items given to me by my late uncle Flt Lt Harvey Clarke also a painting of a 106 Lancaster. I wondered if they were still on display? Being in a wheelchair and unable to come to the museum is there any photographs of your displays? If so I would love to see them. Many thanks L Richards 124 Scarborough ave Stevenage Herts

  2. Hello, Mr Richards, think we may have seen something donated by Harvey Clarke. Not sure which painting tho. There is a painting above the tractor which has the markings WS – J & white markings on the rudders. Would this be it? I have a photo if it is. I will print them plus what else I saw, & post to you. Kind regards Alison
