Our Next Meeting
Wednesday, June 15th at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon.
'Flying is Not a Game for Women'
Speaker: Peter Donovan.
The Air Transport Auxiliary was a civilian organisation during World War II – many of them women pilots - whose role was to collect and deliver aircraft from manufacturers to maintenance units and squadrons. This illustrated presentation will give us an appreciation of the work the ATA did during the war, work that was essential for places such as RAF Wroughton, with its maintenance unit (No. 15) and hangars distributed over the parish.
