"The history of Biggin Hill goes so much further back [than the Battle of Britain]. It is one of Britain's oldest aerodromes and was instrumental to the development of wireless communication technologies," explained the director of the Bigging Hill War Memorial Museum, Jemma Davey.
"[Biggin Hill] was instrumental in the turning point of Second World War."
One of the objects included in the collection is a diary from the Cudham Church of England School.
"The headmaster and headmistress were married to each other," explained Davey, and when they did not survive an air raid, we can see "where the new headmaster sadly and regretfully starts taking over the writing of the school diary."
"It reminds us that civilians and local villagers' lives were so touched by living next to RAF Biggin Hill and nobody really escaped the effects of the war in those circumstances."
