Probus Club

The development of the former Grangemouth aerodrome as a training base for Spitfire pilots during World War II, and the unveiling last year of the Spitfire Memorial in Bo’ness Road outside the gates of the former RAF station, formed the subject of a most engrossing talk delivered to members of Polmont Probus Club last week. The speaker was Ian Pratt, a former officer with Grangemouth (Spitfire Squadron) Air Training Corps. The vote of thanks was offered by Colin McNeil. President-elect Hector MacKenzie was in the chair.
