  1. Ken Wills In Memoriam

    It is with great sadness that the Spitfire Museum has to inform our visitors and stakeholders that our Museum President Kenneth Edward Wills passed away on the morning of October 19th after a long battle with cancer.

    Ken was instrumental in helping our Museum in several ways, not least of which was securing the Museum freehold thus enabling us to take control of our Museum’s future. Though he was only with us for a short time, he certainly made a big impression and a significant difference to what we do here.

    Ken was also a very successful, self-made, Thanet based businessman employing thousands of people, who will no doubt miss him greatly.

    Above all though, Ken was a generous, kind, thoughtful and understanding manager and friend and will be sorely missed by all the trustees, staff and volunteers here at the RAF Manston Spitfire & Hurricane Memorial Museum.

     

Donations are very gratefully received. Not only because they let us know that we enjoy the support and interest of our visitors but also because, like many charities, we can claim Gift Aid support which could add an additional 20% to our donated income.
