Help save Britain's airfields.

 

The 'W E Johns ppreciation Society' and 'Biggles & Co' meet regularly in the UK. Biggles & Co meet in Twyford in April and WEJAS meet in Derby in October. Some people attend both meetings, and many contribute articles to the magazine Biggles Flies Again. This website hopes to serve all these interests, and welcomes all those interested in the life and work of W E Johns. All are welcome to our small, friendly meetings, no need to "join" anything. There are talks by participants, opportunities to browse the bookstalls and artwork on display, take part in a quiz, and enjoy meeting other enthusiasts.

W E Johns died on 21st June 1968.  A meeting was held in Kingston Cemetary to commemorate the 50th anniversary on Thursday 21st June 2018.
