    If I wanted to upgrade my existing monthly donation how do I go about it rather than having multiple donations at once. I have sent a gift aid form to help as well!!

    1. Alan Pickford

      Hi William,

      Apologies for the delay in replying … unfortunately I don’t receive any notification when comments are left on these pages, so I obviously need to check more regularly! You should be able to go into your “Donor Dashboard” ( and update your subscription there. Hopefully that works OK. If you have any further questions, please email me at, but note that I am away on holiday until 30th September, so will not reply until I return.
      Thanks for your support.

    Have just donated to one of my favourite aircraft, also a dear friend of ours , Derek , who
    passed on a few years ago flew mosquitoes in the war. When he was 80 I built an Airfix
    model of a mosquito and he loved it . I long to see one flying one day .

    Can I make an Operation Jericho direct into your bank account? If so, how do I send my details to go with it?

    1. System Administrator

      Hi Phil

      You can indeed. Go to our donation page and scroll down to ‘Direct to our Bank Account’ for the details. If you are able, you can also complete a Gift Aid form so that we can claim an additional 25% back from HMRC. Then ping your details in an email to so that we can record your donation.

      Alternatively, you can use our Virgin Money Giving page to make a donation which automatically completes the Gift Aid form and notifies us of your donation.



  4. A long story, but to be brief, is what I believe to be a Mosquito rudder trim wheel and fitting of any use?

    1. People's Mosquito

      Hi Bob,

      We would indeed be most interested in any items you might have. Would you be so kind as to contact the team via and someone from our engineering team will get back to you.

    Why are you still propagating the myth of “Operation Jericho”? The Amiens prison raid was operation Ramrod 564 and was designed to fool the Germans into believing that they had had a prisoner with knowledge of the forthcoming expected invasion. In 1947 the French Government financed a film titled Operation Jericho to mythologise the role played by the Resistance and the R.A.F. It is an ongoing disgrace that this dramatic raid is demeaned by labelling it something that it was not known as. It is bad enough that ignorant loudmouths are today trying to re-write our history in so many areas without this event being included by people who should really know better.

    1. People's Mosquito

      Hi Remi,

      Many thanks for contacting the team. As you correctly point out, Operation Jericho as the mission was to become better known post-war, was indeed originally tasked as Ramrod 564. Indeed the official call sign of aircraft on the raid was ‘Renovate’. We have reported in some depth on this topic, most recently in our free Club Members’ journal, Mossie Bites, which if you were to join The People’s Mosquito, you would receive for free. In doing so, we have worked closely with respected author Dr Robert Lyman, whose excellent book ‘The Jailbusters: The Secret story of MI6, the French Resistance & Operation Jericho’ is widely regarding as the seminal work on the operation.

      The fact is, that post-war the legend of the raid is closely associated with its Operation Jericho epithet. A epithet which has played no small part in the raid becoming synonymous with the low level precision raids carried out by Mossie crews in WW2 and therefore elevating the achievements of those crews to a level of public awareness only rivalled by the crews of Operation Chastise – aka The Dambusters (by which the raid is better known of course). The memory of those crews who took part in Ramrod 564/Jericho is in no way demeaned by referring to the mission in this manner. Quite the opposite in fact.

    I have jut discovered you through the graces of author Andrew Bird. My Dad flew Mosquitos with 333 squadron, and loved them till the end of his life. We have paintings and models of Mosquitos because of this. I have made a donation in his memory, Flt Sgt Frank Hawthorne.

    I have just donated a small amount, in the name of my Brother David E Rogers of Coventry who was a very big fan of the Wooden Wonder. He has just this last week at the age of 80 passed away having suffered Pancreatic Cancer. So it’s in his name!!

    1. People's Mosquito

      Hi Arthur,

      So sorry to hear of your loss. Are thoughts are with you all at what must be a very difficult time. We hope that David would be proud of our endeavours to return the Wooden Wonder to the skies above Europe and thank you for the generous donation in his name. A very special and personal contribution towards RL249’s return to flight – thank you.

    2. Just set up a monthly payment (incl Gift Aid) in addition to having become a Member of the Group. Done in memory of my Mum who has sadly passed on, who was a Leading Aircraft Woman in the RAF in WW2 having been trained at Fairey Aviation before the war. She could disassemble & reassemble a Merlin engine and test them, . Had to test fly (circuits & bumps) in aircraft where she had worked on the engines, but never got to test fly a Hurricane or Spitfire, even though their pilots offered to take her up sat in their lap!

  10. I spent 4 years and nearly 400 hours driving various Mosquitos for the Fleet Air Arm. I was a Lt[A] RN. I am sending a donation of 200 pounds UK. I currently live at 24C, Anembo Rd, Berowra, Sydney, NSW, Aust.
