Lectures

If you would like to learn more about Upottery airfield, its role in world war two and why we wish to preserve its memory, we would be happy to come and see you.

We visit all kinds of public groups, schools, colleges and residential homes and can bring along a display of photographs and original artifacts, explaining the relatively short but hugely important and fascinating history surrounding the airfield.

Our knowledgeable representatives will give a prepared talk and will welcome any questions you may have. Many people, for example, are surprised to learn that the infamous “Band of Brothers”, immortalized in the television series, actually departed Upottery airfield en route to Normandy on D-Day in 1944.

We do not charge for these presentations, but would appreciate a donation to help with the ongoing costs involved in running the living history group.

If you would like us to come and see you, please contact Dave Bunney or Patricia Knowles, who are both trustees, on 01404 890174.
