All members of the RAF Memorial Flight Official Club are automatically entered into our monthly prize ballots to win some wonderful prizes. Since the Official Club recommenced operations after a pause forced by the COVID pandemic lock down, these have been the ballot prizes for the months of June to August 2020 and the lucky Club members who won them:
This month, two lucky Club members can each win a signed copy of John Nichol’s latest book, Lancaster, The Forging of a Very British Legend, which tells the story of the legendary aircraft, and the men who flew it.
We will randomly select two winners who will receive one book each.
