Next meeting is on Thursday 14th September entitled “The events leading up to and including the Battle of Britain by Chris Wren MBE”.
Venue: Woodford Park, Woodley, 8pm.
Refreshments to be served as usual.
Chris is the curator of the WW2 underground bunker and museum at RAF Uxbridge built in 1939 some 60 feet below ground. He will introduce personalities of the time including Douglas Bader who had a flying accident not far from the our very own Woodford Park on the Woodley airfield and the most successful fighter squadron at the time.
Churchill visited the bunker during one confrontation and enquired what reserves we had – the answer was “none”.
I look forward to seeing you there to look back on those perilous times and be inspired by those incredibly brave men and women to who we owe so much.
