Britain’s first operational airfield was set up in Montrose by the Royal Flying Corps on February 26, 1913 so it was appropriate, therefore, that the latest speaker in the series of talks organised by Montrose Library last week was Neil Werninck, a co-founder of the Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre. Mr Werninck’s illustrated talk was entitled ‘A century of Montrose aerodrome’. Amongst the sizeable audience were two veterans for whom the talk kindled fond memories, David Oswald who served at RAF Montrose from the start of the Second World War, and Ness Vann, whose husband trained as a pilot at Montrose. Mr Werninck is pictured after his talk with Mr Oswald and Mrs Vann.
