A PHOTO exhibition covering the history of a RAF pilots who helped win the Battle of Britain from a Dorset airfield is proving popular.

The display is open on Sundays from 10am to 4pm at The Spitfire Club, Mount Skippet Way, Crossways near Dorchester.

It covers the complete history of the 152 (Hyderabad) Squadron - made up of 40 airmen who defended southern England against attacks from the Luftwaffe forces from their base in Warmwell, near Dorchester. Some 14 of these men were killed during the Second World War.

The exhibition has been put together by Rob Oliver, who has put together a video on the exhibition, which has been viewed by internet users from as far afield as Canada and Australia.

Bonnie, from Canada, said: "Rob has done a fantastic job organizing a first class display. We can’t thank him enough for all of his efforts on behalf of the 152. We really are speechless when we think of the amount of effort Rob has devoted to honouring the squadron over the past 24 years."

Sheryl from Australia described the exhibition as 'truly impressive'.

Rob said the exhibition is his way of giving something back.

He added: "It's about getting people to remember these brave young men, some sadly who paid the ultimate sacrifice for King and Country. Remembrance is every day not once a year."

The exhibition is open Sundays, and is accessible for disabled people. Go to youtu.be/rRPWVwEmpr4 to see the video.
