Alistair Lambert artist with Alan Dowsett, Handley Page apprentice and Handley Page Association editor, at the unveiling.

David Lang, resident, and also a Handley Page apprentice and Handley Page Association member could not attend due to health reasons.  We owe much to him for keeping the aeronautical heritage of Cricklewood alive and we are delighted that this mural makes it evident.
