Thursday 5th September Middle Wallop - Museum of Army Flying Event
Forgotten Few - the story of the naval pilots in the Battle of Britain. For 20 years,
the contribution of the Fleet Air Arm in the Battle of Britain went unrecognised
by either the Admiralty or the Air Ministry. In 1960, the definition of ‘veteran
of the Battle’ was widened to cover two naval squadrons in Scotland and although
the naval pilots were mentioned in official records and memorials, their individual
histories have seldom been recognised. Paul Beaver uses the research from his new
book to tell the stories of some of the characters – the Royal Marine Ronnie Hay
from Amesbury; Douglas Bader’s wingman, Dickie Cork and earlier operations in Norway.
A curry supper is also available from the Apache Cafe at 6pm. Spaces are limited
so book in advance to avoid disappointment. 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Book online https://www.armyflying.com/events/expert-talks/forgotten-few-the-story-of-the-naval-pilots-in-the-battle-of-britain/
