I’m Jonny Cracknell, a writer who also enjoys photography; dedicating much of my time to my interest in all things aviation.
Author of two published biographies of Second World War pilots, and with many aviation and veteran related articles and photographs published in Magazines, Books and the National Press, I am passionate about raising awareness and helping to educate future generations.
Having always been fascinated by the Second World War, the opportunity to document and share an inspirational story before it’s too late, or provoke a thought, remembrance or memory from an image, is hugely rewarding. I’ve been so fortunate to spend time with, and to forge close friendships with, many veterans from this incredible generation who have greatly inspired me, particularly those from the Battle of Britain.
A supporter of the National Memorial To The Few and a volunteer at both The Kent Battle Of Britain Museum & International Bomber Command Centre, I have organised multiple fundraisers to support these and other Heritage Centres; raising more than £20,000 to date through running events, book donations and auctions.
I would love to hear from you on anything I can help with or support, so please do feel free to get in touch.
