The museum due to open January 2018 will be called International Bomber Command. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force being formed.
One attraction will be one of the Lincoln knights. The Knight if the skies was bought by it’s sponsors Game Engineering. It was the knight that sold for the most at 15thousand pounds. It was signed by George Johnson who is the last surviving member of the Dam buster raid.
The image above was taken from the below website which had some more interesting information about the knight, including pictures of it being painted.
Following the knights trial revealed sights, I had never seen before in Lincoln.
The black and white building is a restaurant. I knocked my first wobbly tooth out there, eating fish fingers and swallowed it.
The back of the building above, where I lost my first tooth.
In 2015, Lincoln had a similar trial of batons. I saw one of the full sized sculptures of that in the Minerva building of the university which now has a bronze knight as part of the knight trial. Many shops; more than I took pictures of, have miniature barons in their windows.
Large knights with their names, interspersed with pictures of mini knights in shop windows.
Lincolnshire Spirit and Loving Embrace
This knight’s horse has a unicorn 🦄 type mane. It also has a montage of Lincolnshire countryside.
The Construction knight
Another Construction knight with slightly different name to previous; Knight of the Construction Trade.
There are two with construction themes because they are each sponsored by different construction companies.
Almost a knight of two halves. One side and head on both sides in jigsaw pieces and the other side is about community. It is sponsored by Lincolnshire coop which considers itself a community retailer (food, pharmacy, funeral services and travel services)and has been in existence 150 years with branches around Lincolnshire.
