NON-HAW EVENT - Nicolson, VC Battle of Britain, Spitfire Pilot

15 September 2019 21:15

Dear folks,

In case this should be of any interest to people, as part of the Spitfire Summer programme, I have been invited to give the talk about my uncle, "Nicolson, VC", at RAF Hendon on Battle of Britain Sunday, which is 15th September. My talk will start at about 3pm in the conference room that overlooks the Short Sunderland by the main entrance. The good news is that it is free.

There are a number of event planned, including a Spitfire flypast and the ground running of a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine; I hope neither are at the same time as my talk!

I understand that Max Hastings is giving a talk to promote his latest book on the Dambusters - "Operation Chastise", at 1pm. I imagine there will be a charge for that, but have no details.

If anyone should care to come along to my talk you would be most welcome!

Best wishes,

Jim
