Talk with David Innes and Richard Folkes Marking the 80th anniversary of D-Day, Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum and the Army Flying Museum have teamed up to tell the personal stories of two of the men who carried out the famous Coup de Main operation to seize the bridges in Normandy over the Caen Canal and the River Orne in the opening hours of 6 June 1944. Each with very different roles, Major John Howard DSO of the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry and Staff Sergeant Geoff Barkway DFM of the Glider Pilot Regiment landed at Pegasus Bridge within minutes of each other - but what brought them together that night and what of their later lives? Using archive footage and personal family recollections these are compelling stories of the impact of war” Book your ticket for the in-person talk for just £15, including refreshments on the night. This talk and Q&A will also be streamed live online on the night. Our online talks are free to view, with donations welcome. Supporting Soldiers of Oxfordshire Trust.
