Former RAF men and women in new battle
Honiton and Dunkeswell branch of the Royal Air force Association desperately needs new members.
SEVENTY years after the Battle of Britain, the Honiton and Dunkeswell branch of the Royal Air Force Association is fighting for survival.
Dwindling membership numbers have left the branch on the brink of extinction.
A desperate appeal has now gone out for new members to swell the association’s ranks - before it is too late.
Anybody with a link to the RAF, or associated services or organisations, such as the Air Training Corps, can join.
