“From Nowhere to Normandy”

An illustrated talk on D-DAY by Richard Folkes, ex Director of Army Aviation until 2004, is an excellent speaker and will cover amongst other areas the assault on Pegasus Bridge by gliders that was such a key to the success of D-DAY.

Entrance is free and there will be a collection for Richard Folkes chosen military charity afterwards.

Also afterwards a simple Club supper will be available if pre-ordered, and a sing a long of WW11 era songs. Come in period dress if you like?
