We are happy to link you to an account of the brief history of Eagle Squadron 133
who were stationed at Biggin Hill in 1941.
They used the Queens Head during their brief stay and a bar has
been dedicated to their memory since that time.
Some of their memorabilia was missing when we took over of the pub
in February 2011, but it is gradually being replaced thanks mainly to
Mr Ced Verdon of the Battle of Britain Supporter's Club
