Slindon pumpkin display

"The display commemorates the 75th Anniversary of the Spitfire entering RAF service, in 1939, a few months before World War II. It also commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day landings, 6th June 1944, the plane wearing the Allied recognition markings, of white painted stripes on vertical and horizontal surfaces, to help prevent the threat of friendly fire during, and after, the Normandy landings."
