Forces War Records to bring Spitfire to WDYTYA? LIVE

From Forces War Records (

The world’s largest family history show Who Do You Think You Are? Live will celebrate its 10th anniversary at the NEC in Birmingham this April (7-9) with the help of celebrities and a full-size replica Spitfire in partnership with Forces War Records.

This year Who Do You Think You Are? Live is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a very special addition – a replica Spitfire, complete with its own ground crew and WW2 props in partnership with Forces War Records. Visitors will be able to climb aboard and have their photo taken inside the cockpit of this iconic aircraft, then meet Forces War Records’ military and genealogy experts both inside and outside the replica RAF Mess Hut. Specialists will be on hand to help with military genealogy queries, have details from photographs or documents identified, and demonstrate how to easily search for military ancestors on the website. Twenty minute time slots will be offered for more in-depth discussions. A selection of authentic military memorabilia will be there as well as the Spitfire Crew who will be in costume and character.

As the 5th of March commemorates the 80th anniversary 1st flight of the Spitfire. We’ll be running a competition asking for pictures of Spitfires or Spitfire models to be sent in, the prize will be 2 free tickets to the show. Entries can be made via our Facebook page or emailed to
