The Pegasus Bridge Story: Online Talk by David Innes

Monday 18 January at 1900 hours


In the opening hours of D Day – 6 June 1944 – a small glider-borne coup de main force from the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry seized key objectives in Normandy ahead of the main landings which marked the start of the invasion of Europe.  This is the story of the men in this operation, what happened when they hit the ground, how they took on their German enemies and why their actions that day will always be remembered in that part of France.

This lecture is one of the Army Flying Museum’s Lockdown Lecture series and was created in partnership with the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum.

Just visit the website and watch online using your web browser (Google Chrome recommended).

There is no ticket charge or pre-registration required for this event, but please consider donating if you enjoy the talk
