    Default Lancaster Propeller blade/s?

    I am looking into the possibility of establishing a small memorial which would represent the loss of a RAF Lancaster and its' crew here in Colchester. If anyone can offer any leads on obtaining a propeller blade - condition obvioulsy not important - then could they contact me.

    Many thanks.

    I suggest you contact the British Aviation Archaeological Council , see here ; http://www.aviationarchaeology.org.uk/index.htm who may be able to help ? There are certainly active 'wreckology' groups in your area who may be able to help but in the first instance I suggest to contact the BAAC secretary Dave Stubley via the website . Good luck and let us know how you get on ?

    The memorial would be sited just off the A12 near the Ardleigh interchange if that's what you meant. If you meant where do I live then it's near the main hospital in Colchester.

    Stan, I have just had an email from Fred Pearce of the Fenland & West Norfolk Aviation Museum saying they may have one in store. Can you make contact with them. http://fawnaps.webs.com/

    If they don't then it might be worth trying other museums.

    Thanks for this REF. I've just looked at the link and sent an email on their web page. I'll try and follow this up with a phone call in the morning. Once again, thanks for the lead.
