Online Talk: Spitfire Elizabeth & the Roaring Boys

April 16, 2021 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on Zoom for a new Online 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.
