Supporters of The Museum, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Launch New App To Save Our Lives!
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust (EHAAT) is delighted to announce the launch of its new App for iPhone and Android smart phones. The EHAAT App has a unique function enabling users in the event of an emergency to give an exact six-figure grid reference to accurately pinpoint their location to the emergency services allowing the Air Ambulance to locate and treat the patient as quickly as possible.
Today we received news that General Wilhelm Mohr, (June 27, 1917 – September 26, 2016) who, three months ago at the age of 99, visited the airfield and museum to lay a wreath at the memorial in memory of the 36 Norwegian aircrew who failed to return from operations, sadly passed away. As a mark of respect the Norwegian flag was lowered to half-mast at the memorial. We send our condolences to his family and thank him for his service.
