The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

Many squadrons and stations in Lincolnshire are commemorated through memorials in the form of plaques, statues, stained glass windows and Books of Remembrance. These are listed separately for each unit, formation and station and can be accessed via the lists below. Where photographs of memorials are available they are located on these pages as well.

As a central tribute, the Airmen's Chapel of St Michael within Lincoln Cathedral houses memorial books and stained glass windows commemorating the RAF and other air units who have served in Lincolnshire. More details on the Lincoln Cathedral page.

Memorials to RAF Stations and Bases in Lincolnshire

As time permits we will obtain photographs of all the air-related memorials throughout the county. As with the RAF-Lincolnshire.info project in general this will take some time. The list below indicates stations and squadrons known to have memorials. Links are internal to the site and this navigation appears on each memorial page in the left hand column. There are also many museums in the county - view a list here.

Commonwealth War Graves

Throughout the County of Lincolnshire there are in excess of 1000 Commonwealth war graves. At least 900 of these are Air Force graves. Most are gathered in plots of churchyards of the village churches near flying bases, such as at Scopwick and Cranwell. It is intended to include a complete list of these sites in due course.
