It’s the day of Bert’s funeral. He’s an RAF Veteran of the Second World War and his family have gathered at his home for his last farewell, when they discover an old suitcase full of memorabilia in his attic. There’s a photo… ‘Me and Jamie, a bit worse for wear after a night out in London’ … ‘That was a night to remember. I’ll say no more. Our last day of leave. Within 24 hours of that picture we were over Germany again’.

This unique and moving theatre piece is the story of the Royal Air Force’s war from 1939 to 1945. The story of real people, of their bravery and sacrifice, told through the eyes and words of those who were there.
