Sir Sydney Camm Commemorative Society

sir sydney camm commemorative society(ssccs) exists to promote Sir Sydney Camm's Achievements. Sir Sydney Camm CBE FRAeS (1893-1966) was undoubtedly the UK’s most prolific and successful aircraft designer, with over 50 aircraft types to his name. His designs ranged from biplanes such as the Hawker Hart in the 1930s, through the hugely successful Hurricane – the work-horse of the Battle of Britain – to modern post-war fighters such as the Hawker Hunter and, finally, his vision for the Harrier jump-jet. The sir sydney camm commemorative society(ssccs) was formed in 2006, the 40th Anniversary of Sir Sydney’s death, to promote the achievements of this great man – very much an “unsung hero” without whose design expertise we could very well have lost the Battle of Britain in 1940. ssccs had two aims i.e; to erect a full-size replica Hurricane as a permanent memorial in his home town of Windsor and to establish a scholarship in his name to enable aspiring young engineers to follow in his footsteps. Both of these aims have now been achieved. In 2011 the ssccs announced that all future donations would be transferred to the charitable funds of The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers ,a London Livery Company with long and proven experience of managing educational scholarships. The Company had generously agreed to provide all future funding for the scholarship as one of their range of awards in the aerospace engineering field. The scholarship will therefore be known as the Coachmakers Sir Sydney Camm Scholarship, and will be awarded annually at Kingston University, London, to a Foundation Degree student aspiring to achieve B Eng (Hons) level. The memorial service and plaque unveiling would form the basis of a project to commemorate Sir Sydney by way of a larger monument, but also to encourage young people who had an interest in Aeronautical Engineering.
