Women of the ATA | Talk with Richard Poad
The men and women of Air Transport Auxiliary made a huge contribution to victory in World War II. Initially women were dismissed as not being up to a job as a pilot, flying unarmed, without radios and navigating by map reading. But they soon proved the critics wrong and achieved just as much as the men. ATA historian Richard Poad, from the ATA Museum in Maidenhead, tells their almost unbelievable story with a wealth of photographs and anecdotes from veterans whom he has met. You\'re guaranteed to be amazed and inspired! Don\'t forget to make time to browse the museum galleries when you attend this event. Your talk ticket includes general admission to the museum and all galleries (normally £6.50). Galleries open 2pm - 5pm. One of our series of events marking International Women\'s Day 2024.
Location: Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum (The Briefing Room)
