Dear Cranwellian,

‘Lockdown’ which we are all experiencing is providing time for many things, not least in contacting friends and relatives. It also, certainly in my case, offers time to recall events of the past and VE Day is one of them. It is getting much attention in the media - a welcome relief from Covid-19, and this latest website page from your hard working CA team pays tribute to the many Old Cranwellians who served with such courage and gallantry in the Second World War.

I hope you enjoy it and will raise a glass to all those who gave so much to enable us to live in peace today,

My best wishes to you all,

Mike Graydon
