 Tues 25 June 7pm-9pm - Aviation around Poole Bay 1910-1976 - (Hot meal included) *Click for info and booking*

Tue 25th of June 2024
Premium member price £16.00/ticket

Another very interesting talk by local author and historian Kevin Patience.  Kevin joined us in February with his remarkable talk of stories and tales of the shortest war in history in the late 1800's in east Africa. It had us all so captivated.

Kevin will be joining us again and sharing history and facts of Aviation around Poole Bay and the part it played in connection with aviation from 1910–1976.  Seaplanes operated from Poole in the First World War and in 1939 the harbour was taken over by Imperial Airways later B.O.A.C. now British Airways as a base for the Empire Class flying boats.

The Second World War saw Poole become one of the busiest airports in the world operating flying boats and seaplanes from B.O.A.C., the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy.

Brownsea Island became a STARFISH decoy base and was part of the defences in the protection of the Royal Navy cordite factory at Holton Heath. Poole was bombed on several occasions and was heavily defended in case of German invasion.

During the Battle of Britain, Poole and the surrounding area witnessed many dog fights overhead and had its fair share of aircraft crashes and in June 1944 was a key port for the D Day invasion. It is the 80th anniversary of D-Day this month-6 June.

Kevin tells a side to the story of Poole that few people realise took place in this seaside town on Dorset’s south coast.
