Museum hope for historic RAF base (UK)





A former RAF serviceman is hoping to set up a museum in the officers' mess of one the UK's oldest RAF bases.

RAF Sealand in Flintshire, shut in 2006, bringing to end an association with air force planes which stretched back to the World War I.

Now Carl Mann, who worked there until his retirement, is gathering support for a permanent museum on the site.

He said: "It has a long, important history that will simply be forgotten if we can't get a museum built."

He added: "The Officers' Mess would be an ideal place for a museum because so many important people have dined there, including Montgomery and Churchill."
