Wealden Conservative Association’s Hartfield Branch (Hartfield, Coleman’s Hatch, Holtye, Ashurstwood, Forest Row, Withyham St John’s), invite you to a supper and talk on June 21st 2019 at 7:00pm in HARTFIELD VILLAGE HALL High Street, Hartfield, TN7 4AD.
The topic: SOE - Special Operations Executive -- Churchill’s Secret Army by Gillian Halcrow.
Two-course World War II supper followed by illustrated talk. Tickets: £15:00 -- Bar available.
Gillian has been inspired to research and prepare an address to honour the brave men and women SOE agents who served their country in World War II. She has been fascinated by the subject for many years and has received a terrific response to previous engagements on the subject. She will capture your interest from the start and, over the course of the talk, will move you both to laughter and to tears.
The SOE’s task was to organise the resistance in countries that had been occupied by the Nazis and as Churchill ordered, to ‘Set Europe Ablaze’. It is a fascinating account of the training and preparation the agents underwent and also stories of a few of the missions, some of which achieved amazing success, whilst other agents were betrayed.
TICKETS from John Chalke, 20 Rectory Field, HARTFIELD, TN7 4JE -- Tel: 01892 770 540 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
