International Bomber Command Memorial Unveiling Ceremony – 2nd October, 2015

Boy, were we lucky with the weather today at the International Bomber Command Unveiling Ceremony at Canwick Hill, Lincoln. We sang ‘Strike Hard, Strike Sure’, the new piece specially commissioned for the event by Tom Deveron, with the Lincoln Orpheus MVC & the City Of Lincoln MVC, accompanied by the RAF College band, or rather we accompanied them. We also sang 4 other joint pieces and then the individual choirs sang a few more. A glorious day in every way and such a joy to see 300 veterans. I put together a short video which is below, not my best but it was very much impromptu as we did not know what access or freedom we were going to have. It is done to the audio of ‘Strike Hard, Strike Sure’ but again I had to record at the back of the choir and behind the PA speakers, from in front, you could hear the choir a lot better as there were mics set up, but I was there to sing! The organiser is going to set up a recording – so watch this space
