Military Aerial Reconnaissance and Oxfordshire – Online Talk and Live Q&A with Aldon Ferguson

Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Together with code breaking, Aerial Photo Reconnaissance is claimed to have dramatically shortened the Second World War. Being able to see behind enemy lines, in real time, and bring hard evidence home was a huge bonus to the Allies in their knowledge of Nazi disposition and intention.

Learn how three Oxfordshire airfields were vital to the cause: Benson, Mount Farm and Chalgrove.

From these bases brave reconnaissance pilots set out alone as far as Norway and the south of France to spy on Axis forces and being back vital intelligence, which was interpreted at Nuneham Park and Medmenham by an army of Allied male and female interpreters.

The aircrew motto was ‘Alone, Unarmed but Unafraid!’
