Robert Silva suitcase exhibit. Robert was killed on the first mission to Berlin. His personal effects were packed into his suitcase and returned to his family. Bruce Henderson, Robert's nephew played with the helmet and goggles as a small boy. When he got older Bruce started to ask questions about his uncle and believes this interest lead to Bruce becoming an Aviation Author.
After visiting the museum Bruce and his family decided to donate the suitcase and contents to our museum. We are privileged to be trusted with such a personal family item. The story of the suitcase also documents how Bruce met his dancing partner.

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on recording the buildings that are left on the airfield site before they disappear.
