Meeting: Our Man in Hamburg; A True Spy Story of WW2
Speaker: Robert Dicketts
Wednesday 5th February 2020 – 7.30pm
Woodcote Village Hall, Reading Road, Woodcote, RG8 0QY
On Wednesday, Robert Dicketts gave the BMMHS a fascinating true spy story of WW2… ‘Our Man in Hamburg’. Double agents, MI5, the Abwehr and Gestapo with intrigue and huge somewhat questionable personalities in the heart of wartime Hamburg which Ian Fleming, as a story would have been proud of. All with a magnificent twist at the end. A full house at BMMHS enjoyed a fun evening with food and refreshments and raised £160 for Robert’s nominated Special Forces charity.
Thank you Robert for an excellent talk.
