The Viewpoint of an AAM Volunteer

By General ira snapsorter on 30/10/2015

Here's a word (or two!) from Phil Jackson, one of the AAM's vital volunteers, on what it's like working with us at IWM Duxford:

Early in 2013 I was given the opportunity to assist with the American Air Museum project, which involved the sorting, identification and cataloguing of a very large collection of photographs known as the Roger Freeman Collection. After working for about a year on the ‘ Friends of Duxford’ front desk – meeting and greeting visitors, some of whom were very interesting – I was, to be honest, not over-stretched in the post. Still wanting to have an involvement in the Museum I enquired of the Volunteer Manager whether any other opportunities were available, and luckily, up came this job!

My name is Karina Flynn and I am doing a three month internship for Bottisham Airfield Museum supported by Eighth in the East and IWM Duxford. As part of my internship I will be digitising a collection of nearly 700 photographs belonging to Bottisham Airfield Museum which give a fascinating insight into life on the airbase, the airmen who were based there, along with the aircraft they piloted.
