Reflections on the Battle of Britain

7pm Wednesday 16th October

Join Air Marshal Black Robertson, author of the Fighters in the Blood, A Spitfire Named Connie and From Spitfires to Vampires and Beyond, to hear his reflections on lesser known aspects of the Battle of Britain, in particular those individuals and organisations whose largely unheralded contributions helped ensure the nation’s survival. Above all it’s a story about people, those who in the summer of 1940 helped turn the tide of events. The Air Marshal’s father, a decorated Spitfire ace, was in training at the time but later flew with veterans of the conflict, giving rise to a fund of related stories. It promises to be a fascinating talk.
