Friday Morning Talks: ‘Gulf War One – Tornado’

September 28, 2018 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for another Friday Morning Talk, when we are joined by Tornado pilot Squadron Leader John Peters who will share with us his harrowing experiences during Gulf War 1.

John came to the world’s attention in January 1991, when his bruised and battered face flashed onto television screens around the world. It was his disfigured image that became a potent symbol of Saddam Hussein’s ruthless aggression. His war was not all as he expected – it became a seven-week ordeal of torture and interrogation, testing John to the absolute limit and bringing him close to death.
