7 May 2011, 10.15am – 7.00pm
Leading authors and soldiers are joining rank on Saturday 7 May to offer visitors an exclusive day of talks on the elite warriors of the Special Forces.
From their early beginnings in the Long Range Desert Group and the Chindits in the Second World War to the explosive emergence of the SAS during the Iranian embassy siege, Britain’s elite forces have always cut an adventurous, if secretive, dash.
Discover the inner workings of Britain’s most covert operational force with a series of individual talks at our Elite Forces Celebrity Speaker Day.
Speakers will appear in the following order with two breaks (at times to be confirmed).
•Paul Lincoln – The Long Range Desert Group
•Gordon Stevens – The Originals: The Secret History & Birth of the SAS
•Trevor Royle – Orde Wingate & The Chindits
•Soldier I – The Battle of Mirbat
