As it was the Wingman’s birthday today we had a little run out Dover way. Not one to miss an opportunity I went past Swingate, best known as the site of the well known Dover radar towers from WWII. However the site previously served as an airfield in WWI and there is a memorial commemorating this.

As a bonus – for me at least – later on I heard the unmistakable sound of a merlin from where we stopped for a bite to eat and sure enough a Spitfire emerged out of the clouds and flew over. Camera in car though!
