Tony Bray presents

Nothing is Impossible - The Story of the Glider Pilot Regiment

Monday 6th June - Join us live in the Museum or watch online

Join us on the 78th anniversary of the D-Day landings, to hear Tony Bray tell the tale of the glider assault on the bridges over the Caen Canal and the River Orne, described as the greatest feat of flying in the Second World War. Tony will also explore the development of airborne forces, both parachute and glider, from the darkest days just after the Dunkirk evacuation, to the successful airborne operations later in the war. Discover why the gliders became obsolete, leading to the Regiment’s transition into the modern Army Air Corps.

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the formation of the Glider Pilot Regiment and Tony’s talk will include recently recorded interviews with surviving veterans from this illustrious regiment.
