Burnham air cadets join Polish Armed Forces Day ceremony

Members of Burnham-On-Sea's 290 Air Squadron have been taking part in a Polish Armed Forces Day to pay their respects to Polish servicemen who assisted the Allies during the Second World War.

During the ceremony, which was organised by Avon and Somerset Constabulary, those present paid their respects to three Polish Airmen who are laid to rest at the Commonwealth War Graves in Weston Cementry.

The service was designed to involve the growing Polish population in the town, together with the Royal British Legion and Royal Air Forces Association.

Flt Lt Steve Manville told "It was great to have been invited to provide the guard of honour for the service, especially during this, the 70th anniversary year of the Battle of Britain."

290 Squadron Air Training Corps is based in Burnham at the Cadet Centre on Highbridge Road (TA8 1LN) and meets every Tuesday and Thursday between 7.30pm and 9.45pm.
