100th Birthday, RAF
The 'W E Johns Appreciation
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 will be held in Surbiton Cemetary to commemorate
the 50th anniversary on Thursday 21st June 2018 and we hope to see you
there. Please email me
ALSO - on 10th March 2018 at
the RAF Museum Hendon, Roger Harris will be talking on 'The Life and
Work of W.E. Johns'. The meeting is free but you should book a
meeting 14th April 2018. If you would like to give
a talk at the meeting, we will be very pleased to hear from
you! Book here.
