Friday Morning Talks: Spitfire Elizabeth & the Roaring Boys
15 May at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for another Friday Morning Talk and discover the amazing true story of Royal Canadian Air Force’s 411 Squadron. These fearless pilots flew their Spitfires from several airfields in the South East including RAF Biggin Hill and Tangmere.
Our speaker, Nick Oram, will share with us the missions flown in the winter of 1943-44, leading up to D-Day and beyond, and will tell the personal stories of several of the Roaring Boys pilots, sharing archive footage of them discussing their experiences. Attendees will be able to see original artefacts and photos donated by the pilots’ families.
Nick has woven this fascinating tale into a new book, ‘Spitfire Elizabeth and the Roaring Boys’. For those who are interested to find out more, there will be the opportunity to purchase the book after the talk.
