R101 Stories

For the 90th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the R101 on October 4th, we interviewed Derek Binks, son of R101 survivor Mr J H Binks, Historian Nigel Lutt and former landlord of The Bell in Cardington, Geoff Deacon, to hear their R101 stories.

Lydia Saul, Keeper of Social History at The Higgins Bedford, chatted with our guest contributors on a beautiful autumn morning in early September in the historic grounds of Elstow Abbey.
