Not a flattering pic of what the memorial might be but the idea has been put forward to have the two upright posts in the shape of a Spitfire propeller. This however does not come cheap. The original idea of sturdy wooden posts, similar to the information boards already on the beach, would have been around the £800.00 mark – but this suggestion (and we have only one estimate so far) is around £3000.00.
We have received several small pledges for a new memorial and a modest 7 or 8 hundred pounds would have been achievable but to consider an expensive one would probably mean grander gestures from other organisations – perhaps EDF – or the Polish Air Force Association or even their Embassy.
Anyway open to suggestions, comments etc.
What price for our freedom?
