“Bomber Baron is a Second World War Lancaster Bomber pilot of Squadron Leader rank. Holding symbols of his aircraft he characterises the significance of Lincolnshire's military aviation history.” - Jemima Cholmondeley-Smith
William de Mowbray
William de Mowbray was an English noble. He was described as being as small as a dwarf but very generous and valiant. He supported the French king in the Barons’ War and was taken prisoner at the Battle of Lincoln. He died in 1224 and was buried at Axholme Abbey in Lincolnshire.
