Venue: RAF Cosford

Join the Royal Air Force Museum this festive season and take part in the Letters Home trail, inspired by letters sent during the war from personnel serving overseas, to their loved ones back at home.  Families will be given a letter created using real extracts, but to read the letter in full, youngsters will need to search the hangars to find all the missing words.  With nine words to find across huge hangars packed full of aircraft, it’s no easy task and will require lots of eagle eyed youngsters.
