On 1 May we welcome to the village Fiona Lewis who will talk to us about the Humbie Air Crash. During an air battle with the Luftwaffe over the fields of East Lothian on 28 October 1939 a Heinkel 111 was badly damaged, crash landed and was later dubbed ‘the Humbie Heinkel’


Our talks take place on the first Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm in Aberlady Kirk Stables.
