Air Station Boost

THE COFFEE morning on Saturday at the Auld Kirk Hall in aid of Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre was highly successful.

Dr Daniel Paton, curator, thanked all concerned and added: “This coffee morning raised approximately £900 for the Heritage Centre’s Spitfire Fund, the project to buy a replica Spitfire to mark the centenary in 2013 of the foundation of Montrose Air Station.

“We are looking forward to the unveiling of the Spitfire in July, a great occasion with which to celebrate the aviation heritage of Montrose and to commemorate the many thousands of men and women who served here in two world wars.”
