Tangmere and the Special Operations Exectuivetalk by John Gradwell
In The Langstone Room
John Gradwell, from Tangmere Military Aviation Museum, will give a talk on the Special Operations Executive (SOE), the British underground army of World War II. He will tell us about the pilots who flew the SOE Lysander aircraft from Tangmere on moonlit nights delivering and collecting agents from France. John will also speak about the agents themselves, including a specific female agent from the SOE French Section and her inspiring story of bravery.
