Battle of Britian and an Unexpected Hero

Tunbridge Wells

Sat 14th Sep

12.00 - 3.00 pm

The story of a gardener's son who overcame his personal doubts about his abilities to become one of the top five aces in the Battle of Britain.

Bob Doe thought he was the worst pilot in the squadron and destined for an early grave, but showed his skill in the his squadron's first serious encounter with the Luftwaffe. This is a story, not just about Bob, but also a tribute to those men who flew in battle in the skies over Southern England in 1940.

Lecture by popular historian and author Dr Helen Doe
