  • Bastion in the Air - The Collection 26th May to 9th September 2018

    26 May 2018 - 9 Sep 2018
    The Collection Art & Archaeology
    Danes Terrace, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

    The exhibition at The Collection will run from 26th May until 9th September 2018.

    An entrance fee will be applicable but visitors will not need to book in advance. 

    The exhibition focuses on the rising threat to Britain from air attacks by airships and aircraft, and on the British response, including the formation of the RAF in 1918. 

    A number of museums in Germany are supporting this exhibition with information and artefacts. Lord Ashcroft is kindly lending us the original Victoria Cross awarded to Lt William Leefe Robinson for shooting down an airship over Hertfordshire, the first one destroyed over Britain by a fighter aircraft.  We will also be displaying a model zeppelin that is over 5 metres long. 

    Learn about the contribution by Lincolnshire to British aircraft production during the First World War.  Many people – including native 'yellowbellies' – are not aware that Lincoln was one of the world's largest aircraft manufacturing centres at the time!
