At the meeting on Monday 17th March at Morton Village Hall, thanks were expressed to Tim Smith, Brian Timbrell and Barry Gilyead for their work in providing a loop system in the room members use. Mike Knight had contributed a DVD for the day, The de Havilland Mosquito Bomber.

The background and technical specifications were explained and with contemporary footage members saw how it became one of the most potent weapons of World War II, used for both offensive and defensive action. The Mosquito was unique in concept and outstanding in performance, and was still used after the war, having a role in the RAF until 1953.
