Join the Museum of Army Flying at Stockbridge Town Hall where author, broadcaster and aviator Paul Beaver gives a talk about RAF Middle Wallop – pre the Army Air Corps.

Middle Wallop is Europe’s largest grass airfield and best known as the home of the Army Air Corps. As historian Paul Beaver will explain, it remains much as it was in 1940 in the Battle of Britain. Then the airfield was host to the celebrities of the day – the American fighter aces and British ones like Bob Dow and Ginger Lacey. In his insightful talk, Paul will tell the story of the airfields first incarnation as an RAF base.

Paul says: “If you like local history, this is a talk for you – and if you want to see how Middle Wallop fits into the greater picture of the Second world War, do come along.”

During the Museum’s closure they will have an outreach series of lectures taking place at Stockbridge Town Hall one Wednesday of each month from November 2018 to March 2019.

Space at the Town Hall is more limited than the Museum so be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
