RAF Museum will be celebrating International Women's Day at the Museum on 8th March 2017.
Join the team in the Lecture Theatre at 2pm for a special screening of documentary 'The Secret Spitfires'. From the producer of Downton Abbey, The Secret Spitfires tells the story of the Spitfires built in sheds, garages, back gardens, bus depots and a hotel in a small market town in the South of England, unbeknownst to the Germans.
With a workforce of mainly women, the 2,000 Spitfires built were instrumental to winning the war. Witnesses tell the story of this incredible achievement, set against times of terrible sadness and great joy.
The film concludes with Dame Vera Lynn, who celebrates her 100th birthday in March, reciting a moving poem written by a Spitfire pilot.
Tickets are free of charge and are available here.
