Discovering local heroes…

A day visiting East Kirkby was great fun.

We ate lunch by a Lancaster plane and then Peter, our guide showed us around the bomber.

Peter told us about his dad, who was a navigator on a Lancaster, and how his dad guided the crew back to East Kirkby following a bombing raid and being caught in a searchlight.

Peter’s dad flew an amazing 31 missions over Germany.

To celebrate World Book Day, the children worked with a real author on a ‘super-hero’ character who could have lived during the war.
