the SECRET SPITFIRES
The story of hundreds of women, girls, and a handful of men who build Spitfires in secret during WW2
The RAeS Boscombe Down Branch invites you to attend an exclusive screening of the new documentary film “The Secret Spitfires of Salisbury”. The film tells the forgotten story of how thousands of planes were built in factories hidden in sheds, garages and back gardens during the Second World War. Eyewitnesses recount times of terrible sadness as well as joyous ones that include the arrival of GIs, a Glenn Miller concert and a Joe Louis boxing match. The film features local historian and Boscombe Down archivist Norman Parker as the central character.
The screening will be held at 1700 for 1715 start on Tuesday 31st January 2017, in the Lecture Hall at MOD Boscombe Down – we hope you’ll join us!
