Pat Carty talk on Cheddington Airfield

Pat Carty, author of the book the 'Secret Squadrons of the Eighth' has agreed to come and do another talk of the history of 'Cheddington Airfield' on Friday 21st April at 7pm.

You can read our interview with Pat and a review of his book is also available.

Pat previously did a talk of the airfield, which held many mysteries to avaition historians, in the early 1990s. It will be an interesting night that will explain the scope of US Air Force operations on the base during WW2 including some newly researched information.

Organised by the HORTI with tea & refreshments and donations to the HORTI for organising the event are welcomed at the door and there is a unconfirmed possibility of a signed copy of Pat’s book.

Long Marston Village Hall – Friday 21st April at 7pm

    Found the talk very enlightening and informative on something extraordinary that happened locally
    I would be interested whether Pat Carty would be available to give the talk to the U3A Aston Clinton audience next year

    We hold 6 talks each year on a variety of topics, usually with a local flavour, at our recently renovated and refurbished Community Centre. Would Pat be available to visit us for a talk on Cheddington Airfield, a subject we would be fascinated to hear about.
