11 May, 18:30

London, 90 Lots Rd, London SW10 0QD, UK


Andrew Duncan has generously agreed to speak about a major theme of his recently published novel, Somerville's War: the women pilots of the Air Transport Auxiliary. Often at great peril, these extraordinary women ferried aircraft from the factory to front line airfields, freeing up RAF pilots for combat: a little known corner of World War Two history, the ATA is increasingly recognised as playing a significant in winning the Battle of Britain. Andrew's insight into the ATA and these courageous women, doing men's work long before that became commonplace, is unique: his mother was one of them. 

We are delighted that the evening will include a suitable musical accompaniment with songs from the era.

Tickets, which include a glass of champagne on arrival, a curry supper, musical accompaniment and the talk by Andrew, cost £65 per person. 

Doors will open at 6.30pm when Age Unlimited will welcome you with a glass of champage.Andrew's talk will begin at 7.0pm to be followed by a curry and music. There will be a cash bar for wine and spirits at supper.
