Home of the Infantry Regiments of Berkshire and Wiltshire

Wednesday 15th June at 7pm


Join us at 7pm on Wednesday 15th June in a special online partnership talk presented by Chris Tarrant exclusively for the Army Flying Museum and The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum.

Chris Tarrant and his father Basil were very close, but it was only after his death he realised that he hardly knew him at all …Chris will reveal the extraordinary story of what happened to his father during the war, and how he came to be awarded the Military Cross which had remained a mystery to Chris and his family for nearly sixty years.

You will hear stories of his father's experiences in some of World War Two's most significant campaigns, including the Dunkirk evacuation, Operation Market Garden and the D-Day landings, and also his part in some of the most brutal, close-range fighting in Cleve.

Don't miss this profoundly moving and heartfelt tribute to his father and humble commemoration of the bravery and sacrifice of the soldiers of World War Two.
