The Pegasus Bridge Story - SOFO Thanks You
After a few unfortunate technical issues meant we initially had to reschedule what would be our first online talk, the Pegasus Bridge Story succesfully broadcast to an audience of over 800 viewers from 7pm on Thursday 21st January and many, many, more watching the archived video of the lecture over the following days.
While the talk was the first in what we hope to be a series of online events for Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum, it was the most recent of a long series of fascinating lectures produced by the Army Flying Museum, who guided and worked in close co-operation with us for The Pegasus Bridge Story - the talk features our own Trustee, David Innes, discussing critical D-Day operation from the perspective of the men involved, while Paul Beaver, speaking from AFM, goes into more detail about the aircraft involved.
We want to extend a massive thank you in particular to all those who have so generously donated to SOFO since the event went live.
At this time, with the museum forced to close to visitors once again due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and resulting lockdown measures, we are unable to rely on our traditional means of supporting the museum through admissions. At this critical time, we cannot stress enough how much this support has helped to keep the museum alive!
The Pegasus Bridge Story, along with a partly re-recorded Q&A section for improved audio, is now available for all those who missed it or simply want to watch again.
