Prestigious Royal Aeronautical Society’s Heritage Award presented to Pembroke Dock Heritage Trust

Pembroke Dock Heritage Trust has become the first Welsh recipient of the prestigious Royal Aeronautical Society’s Heritage Award.

The Royal Aeronautical Society’s Heritage Award recognises significant contributions to aeronautics and achievements of original and unique world importance.

Just 26 other awards have been made by the Society in the past 14 years and Pembroke Dock joins an illustrious group of award winners.
For nearly 30 years Pembroke Dock was an RAF Station and in wartime became the largest flying boat station in the world with 99 flying boats, mostly Short Sunderlands, recorded in 1943.
Pembroke Dock has long connections with all three Armed Services, reflected in displays at the town’s Heritage Centre, which is run by the Trust.
The Heritage Award, in the form of a plaque, was jointly unveiled by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed, Colonel Martin Green, and Group Captain Mike Hawkins of the RAeS.
