Mike Llewellyn M.B.E
The Trustees and Volunteers of The Kent Battle of Britain Museum Trust are sad to announce that Mike Llewellyn M.B.E, Founder and Curator of the Museum, has died after a long illness, on 16th October 2013 at the William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, Kent. For those of you who may wish to attend his funeral some details about the day. The service will be held at Hawkinge Crematorium on Wednesday 6th November at 2:00 pm. Mike will be carried on the back of his beloved Leyland Cub fire engine, lined by the museums volunteers for the short journey to the crematorium, setting off from the museum at 1:45pm. Weather dependant, the service will be accompanied by a flypast from a Spitfire and Hurricane. Mike has requested that no flowers are to be sent and would prefer anyone wishing to do so to make a donation to The Kent Battle of Britain Museum trust. If you have any further questions then please feel free to get in touch.
